May Chapter Meeting Workshop

Earn Three Re-Certification Credits

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 | Hilton Bellevue

This year, the LWHRA Programs Committee is trying out a new format for a couple of our chapter meetings. These chapter meetings will be called workshops, and will be half-day events, where attendees can earn up to three re-certification credits!

Our goal is to use these meetings to take a deeper dive into certain HR topics so that our HR community can come away with some new expertise.

This May workshop will focus on the topic of harassment. There will be three separate speakers who will be diving into different aspects of the topic. This meeting will take place at the Hilton Bellevue at 7:15 AM, and will end around 11:30 AM. LWHRA will provide a light breakfast, snacks, and beverages.
