Our monthly meetings from September through June feature speakers who share valuable information about human resource topics in areas such as motivation, performance management, human resource strategy, compensation, career management, and legal issues such as FLSA, FMLA, sexual harassment, discrimination and other workplace issues. The various subjects presented for discussion help our members deal effectively with the issues they face in maximizing the contributions made by employees in their respective organizations. Our spring legal update seminar provides vital information about State and Federal compliance issues that impact the human resource function. Both members and non-members are invited to attend.

Then SHRM & HRCI approves the program and authorizes credits based on the length of the meeting. We inform attendees that the seminar is approved for credits.
