The 2011 WI SHRM State Conference will take place October 12-14 at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI. State Conferences do not happen in a vaccum. They require a lot of commitment and hard work to put on the “big show.” This is one of an ongoing series highlighting the people behind the scenes as well as the positions they hold.
Publications/Advertising plays an integral role in the success of any conference. Not only are they responsible for putting together the beautiful program that we pore over during a conference, but they secure the advertising that goes in the program as well.
