Greetings SHRM Student Chapters!
Is your student chapter interested in hosting the HRGames and Student Conference in 2016? Then be sure to submit a Bid Proposal by Thursday, April 30, 2015! That is just over a week away!
There are many benefits to hosting the HRGames and Student Conference. This event offers the opportunity to bring significant recognition to your university, community and chapter in addition to bringing professional chapter volunteers, students and student chapter advisors together in a meaningful way. The effort it takes to plan and conduct the games is worthwhile and beneficial to you, your peers, and the professional members that volunteer and participate in this energizing event. It is also an excellent resume builder!
For those that have not attended this event in the past, the HRGames consist of a two-day (Friday and Saturday) series of game show style matches between teams of up to three undergraduate students from various Wisconsin colleges and universities. The questions for the matches are divided into categories similar to those used in the Assurance of Learning (AOL) exam. Here the students receive an opportunity to network with other students and showcase their knowledge to HR practitioners.
The one day Student Conference (Saturday) is generally split into breakout sessions covering various industry related topics. We strive to provide an atmosphere of learning, networking, inspiration, collaboration and engagement for everyone’s professional development.
The form to submit your bid/proposal to host the event was sent via e-mail to all WI Student SHRM chapters earlier this week. Act quickly! The deadline is approaching fast!
We are excited to receive your bid to nominate the 2016 HRGames and Student Conference! If you have ANY questions, please contact Ashly Woosypiti, Wisconsin State SHRM Council – College Relations Director (Elect). Ashly.Woosypiti@gmail.com or by phone at: (414) 732-5246. Good luck!!
