December 2014 State Director Message

A message from your WI SHRM State Director, Margie Harvey, SPHR

What a fantastic year we have had within our WI SHRM State Council!  It has been such a pleasure serving as your state council director for the past two years! 
A special thank you to our state conference planning committee for a wonderful state conference in October.  It was our largest attended conference so far, and the learning and networking experience offered to attendees was amazing!  The conference committee worked tirelessly for months to bring it all together, and we thank each of you for the energizing experience!
On behalf of our state council, I would like to recognize and thank two council members for completing their full three year terms this year:   Joanne Krueger – District Director –SE, and Helen Englebert - Workforce Readiness Director.  I would also like to thank Tonia Gibeault, who served two years as our council secretary, and Rick Schemm, who served one year as our District Director-NW.  Their efforts and impact on moving the HR profession forward within our state has been truly appreciated!  Thank you Joanne, Helen, Tonia, and Rick!
I would also like to announce our 2015/2016 Director-Elect.  Joanne Krueger will be transitioning from the District Director role to WI SHRM Director-Elect. This is a two-year term and we are thrilled to have Joanne in this role.
