March 2014 State Director Message

A Message from Your WI SHRM State Director
Happy Spring!  I experienced my first 50 degree weather day in Wisconsin since last fall, and it was wonderful!  I’d like to remind you of a few upcoming events that I hope you can attend for more HR opportunities for learning and networking.  We have two state legislative conferences coming up:  March 20 in Eau Claire, and April 24 in Milwaukee.  For the first time ever, Wisconsin will be hosting our 10 state north central region’s Regional Student Conference and Case Competition April 25-26 in Milwaukee.  We will need lots of HR professional volunteers for this event.  It’s a great networking opportunity, it’s easy, and it’s a great way to give back and invest in our future HR workforce!  See more details on all of these conferences on our www.wishrm.org website. 
Come join us!
