A Message From Our Chapter Leadership

In alignment with our mission to advance the HR profession and serve the HR professional, Wichita SHRM has identified the following initiatives for 2019: expand programming and networking opportunities, develop a mentoring program for new members and students, focus on new and existing member engagement, and reengage our committees.

We are excited to announce our new luncheon venue location: Wichita Brewing Company Event Venue, 6160 E. Central. We hope to see you soon at one of our monthly chapter meetings, held the third Wednesday of each month. Visit our Events page to sign up and keep an eye out for special events, too.
