Greetings my Kansas SHRM friends!
I hope you all had a fantastic summer and are all geared up for our upcoming Kansas SHRM State Conference: Play Ball with HR! Our conference committee has been busy preparing a top-notch conference for you with inspiring speakers, exhibitors to help with your HR needs, lots of recertification credits, and networking opportunities galore! If you are not signed up yet, there is still time - I hope you will consider joining us! Please visit
for more information. If you are signed up, I look forward to seeing you there! Oh, and don't forget to wear your favorite sports attire because we're going casual this year in keeping with our theme!
In addition to the conference - your Kansas SHRM volunteer leaders and peers have kept busy with some exciting organizational development projects. On June 2, we had 17 Kansas SHRM members meet in Salina to do a strategic planning workshop for the Kansas SHRM State Council. I appreciate everyone who was able to make it to this crucial event this year and I'm excited about the outcomes of the workshop, which include our Mission Statement, Vision Statement, and Strategic Initiatives. Check them out below!
