May Chapter Meeting Workshop

Earn Three Re-Certification Credits Instead of One

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.

Dear SHRM Volunteers & Members:

Let your ideas be heard by the
SHRM Board of Directors!

The primary charge of the Membership Advisory Council (MAC) is to serve as the liaison between our amazing SHRM volunteers and our SHRM Board of Directors. We are proud that we have a Board who listens to your feedback and takes action, as evidenced by several Board initiatives which have resulted from your feedback through these surveys.

Please help us by sharing YOUR perspectives by taking the 2018 Spring MAC survey. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Your answers will be compiled with those of other SHRM members and will be addressed in a report that your MAC representatives will make to the SHRM Board of Directors in June.   

Please complete the survey as soon as possible as our deadline is Monday, April 23, 2018.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey,
