2019 LWHRA Symposium
Will Be Rescheduled

As you may have heard, the 2019 LWHRA Symposium has been delayed, due to this week's weather. LWHRA will be sending out an announcement about the new date soon. There will likely be an additional enrollment period available for those who were unable to attend the previous date but are interested in attending the new date. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we appreciate your patience as we finalize details. 

March Chapter Meeting 

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 | Hilton Bellevue

Join LWHRA and speaker Devin Craig for his presentation “How to Build an Intentionally Awesome Culture.”

We all know culture is huge! Yet the facts don’t lie. Most people don’t feel their workplace cultures are helping them or their organizations thrive. This presentation will teach you all the foundations of great culture. It will include individual and group activities to reinforce learning and a culture self-assessment, so you’ll walk away with a simple, effective, executable plan you can start using the same day. 

Read more about the presentation and the speaker, and register today.

Participate in the LWHRA
Mentoring Program

Are you someone that could benefit from developing a relationship with a trusted, personal HR adviser? Are you an experienced HR professional looking for a fulfilling way to give back to the community? LWHRA's Mentorship Program will provide you with the chance to connect with a diverse group of HR peers.

Our 2019 program kicks off in March and applications for mentees and mentors are being accepted now.

For more information, including how to submit applications or questions about the program, check out the LWHRA website.

Volunteer Facilitators Needed for SHRM Certification Prep Course

The LWHRA Certification Committee is looking for volunteer speakers to facilitate one class per semester for the SHRM Certification Prep Course. Speaker topics cover the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (BoCK) behavioral competencies and 15 areas of HR knowledge including workforce management, diversity & inclusion, HR in the global context, and employee and labor relations.

Volunteers with expertise in more than one area may facilitate more than one class. Preference will be given to presenters holding the SHRM-CP/SCP or PHR/SPHR certifications. Classes start soon; complete the volunteer interest form today if you would like to facilitate a class this semester.

Volunteer with LWHRA this Year

LWHRA is a volunteer-run organization, and your support makes our programs possible.
