Wichita SHRM
 

Hello Wichita SHRM.


We have arrived at the fourth quarter of the 2014 year and we still have several informative and fun events scheduled for the balance of the year.  We have two programs in October – our regularly scheduled lunch program on October 15th plus a special afternoon session on October 24th.  In November we have the legislative update scheduled for November 19th.  Finally, we have our annual Holiday Social in December.  Just click on the calendar of events to see all the details.   


If you are not yet a member you should know that our monthly luncheon meetings offer the opportunity to meet with peers, exchange ideas, and discuss common problems. We welcome anyone with a need for more information or an interest in the field of human resources.


Wichita SHRM is the best place to meet seasoned and emerging HR leaders, find educational opportunities, share best practices with fellow practitioners and engage in impactful and value added volunteer opportunities.  Our 2014 programs are timely, valuable and relevant to the HR professional and each one provides the opportunity to earn general or business HRCI credits.    


Whether you are a current SHRM member or a soon-to-be SHRM member I encourage you to get involved.  Our chapter is known in throughout the state as active, innovative and engaged.  We have several committees that would welcome you as a new member. Consider joining the Diversity, Membership, Marketing or Workforce Readiness committees today.  


Should you have questions about our website, or the Chapter, or committee opportunities, please feel free to contact me or refer to our list of board members and reach out to the director overseeing the area you have a question about.  


Hope to see you soon!


Teresa Bengtson
