Conference Description

Join your HR colleagues from around the state at our 5th Annual WISHRM Day on the Hill event!  The Day on the Hill provides you the unique opportunity to travel to Madison, WI for a day of legislative insight and networking with colleagues and legislators. The event is scheduled in February to provide our attendees with the opportunity to make an impact at the start of a new legislative session.

Prior to the Day on the Hill event, online training on how to conduct an advocacy meeting will be delivered. The day of the event will include an employment law update from Attorney Bob Gregg of the Boardman & Clark Law Firm, discussion on SHRM advocacy efforts from Meredith Nethercutt, Director for Member Advocacy at National SHRM, and other educational topics. Sessions will be submitted for preapproval of recertification credits.


The day will conclude with scheduled meetings with your individual Legislators and/or Legislative staff members at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Legislator meetings typically last about 15 minutes, at which you will discuss current issues pertinent to the human resources profession. If you are a first time attendee and unsure of the legislator meeting process, just tell us on your registration form and we will ensure we have someone to attend your first meeting with you! Business attire is recommended for legislative meetings.

The Day on the Hill will provide a great opportunity for you to advocate on behalf of WISHRM and the HR profession, to learn more about the political process, and to have a real impact on the public policy debate in Wisconsin involving critical HR and business issues.

Also, join us at the Top of the Park on Wednesday evening from 5:30pm to 7pm for a social/networking event.  Dress is casual.  If you are unable to attend the Thursday Day on the Hill event, but would still like to attend the Wednesday networking event, the cost to attend the networking event only is $25.
