Member Spotlight: Max Flores

Max Flores serves as secretary for TASPA Executive Board; he is also the Resources Coordinator at Alamo Heights ISD, In San Antonio, Texas.

In 2014, Max transitioned into Human Resources Coordinator at Alamo Heights ISD, in San Antonio. Max works hard as an advocate for education profession as he is a member of multiple committees and groups in AHISD. One of the committees, is the District Design Team whose task is discovering innovative ways to design district professional development and the new teacher induction program. For the past 3 years Max, has been very proud to serve as a student mentor once a week at Alamo Heights High School. As HR Coordinator, he feels recruiting great teachers is an important and crucial task of his job.

After becoming HR Coordinator, Max instantly became a member of TASPA; he is a strong believer in being an active member of the HR/Personnel Community. As a member, Max makes strong efforts to attend any/all HR workshops, meetings and networking opportunities. Part of his community involvement includes, serving as Treasurer for the San Antonio Area Personnel Administrators known as SAAPA.

Max believes one of the biggest challenges human resources administrators face are the effects that State litigation, policy updates, state required reports and trainings have on districts. District administrators have limited or no control over any state decisions although they are required to assure the changes made by the state are carried out with limited support.

TASPA has been a great resource to Max, he knows he can always connect with other HR administrators and share ideas or talk through difficult situations. Max feels when HR minds work together they can find solutions to any situation. He believes TASPA is a great model for HR networking and great resource for everything involving Human Resources.
