Wisconsin State Council SHRM Developing Professionals - Serving the HR Profession
Leadership Overview
The Leadership Director is responsible for coordinating the leadership, volunteer, society and human resources-related training and development activities for the members of the state council and local SHRM chapters.
This page is meant to be a resource to SHRM volunteer leaders throughout the state of Wisconsin. You will find information on this page that will help you connect to best practices, information on WISHRM Leadership Conference and general materials that can help you build a toolkit for you in your roll as a volunteer leader with SHRM. My first efforts go to the national SHRM website to the pages for Templates and Tools or the Volunteer Leaders' Resource Center - VLRC to find exactly what I need.
If you are looking for specific assistance in an area you don’t find here reach out to your District Director or your WISHRM Leadership Director because we are here to help you.
On behalf of the WISHRM State Council we would like to thank you for giving of your time, energy and talents to make a difference in ‘Serving the Professional and Advancing the Profession’.

2012 WISHRM State Leadership Conference
If you are a volunteer leader with a Wisconsin SHRM chapter, state council or student chapter (or will be soon) this conference opportunity is just for you! We invite you to attend this year’s conference at Stone Harbor Resort, set in picturesque Door County Wisconsin.
The Leadership Conference Committee is enthusiastically planning great programming and entertaining events to provide you with details about the WISHRM Council positions, tools for maximizing effectiveness in the volunteer partnerships of chapter councils and a tidbit on getting legal help. Our goal is to fan the flame of your HR passion, boosting the levels of energy that you desperately need as volunteer leaders.
Be thinking of the movie star you would most like to portray at the conference because we invite you to be ‘Red Carpet Ready’ for a great time. Click here for more information.
Join us for the 2012 WISHRM State Leadership Conference on August 2nd and 3rd, 2012 in Sturgeon Bay at the beautiful Stone Harbor Resort & Conference Center.

2012 National SHRM Leadership Conference
Each year in November SHRM welcomes about 600 volunteer leaders to its Alexandria, Va., headquarters for the annual Leadership Conference and open house. Consider accepting the invitation to take advantage of a great opportunity to bring HR issues to the US Congress, network with individuals that walk in your shoes – nationwide, and meet some of the staff that supports all of us in our volunteer positions.
