Happy Birthday WCW SHRM! It was one year ago this month that Kristine Hackbarth-Horn presided over the affiliation meeting for the West Central WI SHRM chapter. After functioning as a local HR group for three years prior to affiliation it has been exciting to experience all of the benefits that come from being a part of the SHRM family. This year has flown by with a flurry of activity and planning. We have had excellent speakers present on various topics, spent time laying the foundation for the future and enjoyed great networking opportunities. We also participated in “One Day to Make a Difference” by reaching out to non-profits and small businesses in our communities with a HR Best Practices booklet. Many thanks to the board members for all of the hard work invested this past year. Also, a huge thanks to Kristine Hoffman, Kellie Dunn-Poggemann, Kristine Hackbarth-Horn, Anthony Dix, Matt Stollak and many others who have patiently answered questions, steered us in the right direction and encouraged us along the way. We look forward to another exciting year ahead! Be sure to look for our group at State Conference later this week. We’ll be the ones with the Birthday hats!
