2007 State Conference Fun & Networking Activities'
There will be over 100 vendors in our Exhibit Hall and you’ll have the opportunity to meet them all on your “Volksmarch” all while enjoying some great Oktoberfest activities, food, beverages, and entertainment. A “Volksmarch” is a trail walk (originated in Europe) with checkpoints and refreshments throughout the exhibit hall.
We’ll celebrate you at our Attendee Dinner on Thursday night and following that will be another opportunity to celebrate as you “Join Us For A SHRM Gemutlickkeit” which means the spirit of friendship.
There’s something for everyone at this year’s conference from the student entering our profession to the new HR professional to the senior HR professional. We are really looking forward to welcoming people to Oktoberfest in La Crosse – a great tradition in our beautiful city! La Crosse is nestled between the mighty Mississippi and the bluffs. In October the fall colors should be beautiful! On top of that, the downtown area near the La Crosse Center has many great restaurants such as The Waterfront, Piggy’s, The Freight House, Buzzard Billy’s, Three Rivers Lodge, Big Al’s Pizza. Historic Downtown has unique gift shops, coffee shops, and great ice cream. The night life is always entertaining if you have any energy left after the conference events!
