HR Shore to Shore
At the conclusion of this conference, we hope you depart better
prepared to meet the challenges we face in the pursuit of prosperity for
our employers, co-workers, and fellow citizens. We each play a very
important role in that endeavor.
n behalf of the Michigan Council of
SHRM, I am excited to welcome you to
the 2015 Michigan SHRM Conference and
Exposition in Grand Rapids!
For more than 25 years, this annual
conference has delivered tremendous value
to business professionals throughout the
state of Michigan and other parts of the
Midwest. A vast team of volunteers work
tirelessly each year to make each conference better than the last, while keeping each
attendee's professional development and success in mind.
From the technical knowledge imparted
and the competencies groomed to the professional connections you'll make, this is an
event like no other in the state. Nowhere else
can you make these connections and earn an
abundance of recertification credits (both
HRCI and SHRM) within three days of
amazing presentations and sessions. The most
"bang for your buck," as they say.
Discover limitless possibilities with
your HR budget. We make it simple.
