HR Kansas Connects 2015 - (Page 5)

Message from the Director Trinidad Galdean, JD, PHR, SHRM-CP 744186_Morris.indd 1 Welcome to the 2015 Annual Kansas SHRM Conference! This year, over 2,600 human resource professionals are participating in Kansas SHRM activities, either as members of a local SHRM chapter or as national SHRM members residing in Kansas. The Kansas State Council of SHRM (KS SHRM) appreciates the continued relationship it has with all these individuals, and takes pride in being a resource for human resource professionals. KS SHRM consists of individuals devoted to advancing the human resource profession. Twelve local chapters actively assist in this endeavor by concentrating on key issues important to Kansas SHRM members. The annual conference exists primarily as a means for KS SHRM to educate and connect with HR professionals throughout Kansas and the neighboring states. KS SHRM hopes that, in advancing the human resource profession, HR professionals would always have a key role in their employer's business decisions. Planning for programs begins more than a year in advance of the annual conference. This year's program selection focuses on furthering the HR profession by having several nationally-known speakers. KS SHRM is especially proud of this year's speakers and topics. While great speakers and topics are important, the opportunity to connect with other HR professionals is vital. HR professionals throughout the region attend this conference for the sake of professional development and networking. Please enjoy this year's speakers and topics, and take advantage of the network of Kansas SHRM and HR professionals. If you have a chance to meet a volunteer with KS SHRM or a local SHRM chapter, please thank them for advancing the HR profession. Also, follow the Kansas SHRM Conference on Twitter at @KSSHRM and with #KSSHRM15. We look forward to an outstanding conference and hope it will be profitable to everyone. Thank you for your participation. Trinidad Galdean, JD, PHR, SHRM-CP KS-SHRM State Director/President Email: Twitter: @TrinidadEmpLaw Advance the Profession * HR Kansas Connects 5/6/15 7:54 PM5
