    Becky Brown - 2018 President

    Hello, my name is Becky Brown, SHRM – CP and I am the incoming 2018 President.

    I have been employed by Bodine Electric Company for the past 19 years.   Over these 19 years I have held several different positions within the Company.  I have been in my current role, as the Human Resource Manager since the beginning of 2013. 

    Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband of 22 years, Philip.  Together we have raised three children:  Alison, who is currently a senior at Mount Mercy in Cedar Rapids and is studying to be a nurse.  She also works at Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids, and has received an offer of full-time employment after graduation!!     Austin, is in his first year at NICC in Calmar, studying Ag Mechanics (John Deere Program).  My youngest, Alex, is a sophomore at Western Dubuque in Epworth and he as an aspiration to become a Mechanical Engineer.     Together our family enjoys competing in tractor pulls (some more than others!). And when time allows, Philip and I enjoy gathering a group of friends and hopping on the Harley.


    Elizabeth Schmal - 2018 Treasurer

    My name is Elizabeth Schmal and I am the Human Resources Generalist at DuTrac Community Credit Union. I have been with DuTrac for 2 years and previously held HR positions with Molo Oil and Kendall Hunt Publishing. I have been a member of TRIHRA since 2011 and have been involved in the Programs Committee along with being the current Treasurer. I enjoy the Human Resources field and building relationships with our staff. Being someone they are comfortable coming to with questions and/or concerns is important to me. I want to help them become successful and enjoy coming to work.

    Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, Craig, Dakota (21), Brandon (15) and Charlie (2). We have family in Ames and love traveling to visit them as well as attend Iowa State Cyclone events. My family are also big race fans so in the summer you will find me at a race track somewhere watching some sort of racing…my favorite are the drag races. However, as long as the sun is shining and it’s warm I’ll go to just about any race and enjoy the people watching.
