• State Conference Nominations Information
Every year Wisconsin SHRM puts together a State Conference for Human Resource Professionals.  We are very proud of the success of those conferences through the years.  The conferences would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of volunteer professionals who form a planning committee each year.
