A Message From Our Chapter Leadership

What an exciting time it is for Wichita SHRM as 2020 is our chapter’s 60th anniversary to celebrate our efforts in advancing the profession.  I am excited to have the opportunity to lead this organization in what I promise will be an informative and program-filled year.  Whether you are new to SHRM, renewing your membership once again or perhaps joining us after some time away, we welcome you.  It is dedicated professionals such as yourselves that make this chapter one of the best and most vibrant chapters in Kansas.  To that, I thank you and want to be among the first of many to welcome you.

In 2020, you can expect monthly chapter meetings, special programs and speakers from across the country and other events, including our annual State SHRM Conference to be held this year at the Kansas Star Casino and Resort in Mulvane this coming September.  I certainly hope you will pay close attention to the calendar of events and watch for the events that will most certainly ignite your spirit to lead others, challenge yourself and demonstrate your dedication to HR.

Our board of directors this year is a group of dynamic people that I am very excited to work with.  They will be working hard to ensure that you get the most out of your membership and all of us on the board encourage you to seek out any one of us if we can assist you in any way.  We look forward to seeing each of you at an event soon and welcome your input and feedback.  I also encourage each of you to get involved in some way.  We have lots of volunteer opportunities and committee’s that could use your help throughout the year at programs and events to help them run smoothly or you can be behind the scenes and assist our team with planning and logistics of certain occasions.

Again, there is so much in store for this year and I am excited to share it with all of you.  I can’t think of a professional organization that offers so much for a $60.00 annual local membership ($30.00 for a local membership if you are a National SHRM member).  I look forward to seeing you at a SHRM event soon and wish you all the Best for the New Year!
