WI State SHRM Leadership Conference


This annual conference is targeted at the volunteer Board Members of our WI SHRM Chapters.   The focus of this conference is to offer attendees a chance to network and learn best practices that will help them strengthen the work of their Local SHRM Chapter.   Each year this session offers a deeper understanding of how SHRM, the WI State SHRM Council and Chapters support the HR professional.  Areas of focus may include workforce readiness, certification, diversity, governmental affairs, membership, special state wide projects and many more. This conference also provides several sessions that provide professional growth opportunities for this group of volunteer leaders.   If you are a State Council Board Member or a Board Member of one of our WI SHRM Local Chapters, please click here to find out more about the Leadership Conference - 2011.

WI State SHRM Legislative Conferences


Each year as HR professionals we strive to stay on top of the forever changing employment law landscape in the state of WI and at the National level.   These conferences are designed to help make that journey a little bit easier for us.   Held in Spring, these conferences target putting you and our Legislators in the same room.   They also strive to provide us with the latest trends and changes in employment law.
