Focusing on the Future
Over the course of the event, you'll have many opportunities to continue
your education and professional development, as well as groom competencies
and make amazing connections with others in the field of HR.
n behalf of the Michigan Council of SHRM, I am excited
about welcoming you to the 2016 Michigan SHRM Conference
We are very happy to have you join us for a few days of learning,
networking and professional development. The Michigan SHRM
(MISHRM) Annual Conference and Exposition brings together
business professionals from throughout the state of Michigan, and has
grown to be one of the largest conferences of its kind in the Midwest.
This year's theme is "The Future of HR is Now," based on a comprehensive study and a 15-year forecast of the HR profession that
was completed by the Society for Human Resource Management in
2001. Now, 15 years on, what have we learned, and what do we need
to know as we move forward?
Over the course of the event, you'll have many opportunities to
continue your education and professional development, as well as
groom competencies and make amazing connections with others in the
field of HR. You'll also be able to earn an abundance of recertification
credits (both HRCI and SHRM).
Beginning with the Executive Conference and Legal Summit on
Wednesday, through the traditional conference breakout sessions on
Thursday and Friday, you will learn and share the most up-to-date
information on a variety of trending topics. I am confident that you
will also be inspired by our fantastic lineup of keynote speakers each
day-impacting your perspective and broadening your approach to
business and your career. Additionally, we will present two "Top
HR Professional" awards during the conference closing luncheon.
4 2016 MISHRM State Conference * Oct. 12-14
This prestigious award was introduced in 2014 to formally recognize
achievement in the field of HR in Michigan.
At the conclusion of the 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.
Planning a conference such as ours takes a tremendous number of
volunteer hours by many people. This year's conference planning was
led by MISHRM's State Conference Director, Michael Pachuta, along
with many members of the state council and members of chapters
throughout the state. We also have more than 100 exhibitors and
sponsors this year. Without the support and dedication of these people
and organizations, this event would not be possible. Please join me
in thanking them!
If you're wondering: How do I get more involved with MISHRM?

throughout the state is closest to you. Learn about all the ways each
chapter supports HR professionals within their community. Attend

the best ways to get involved and supercharge your career.
Have a great conference experience!
