Join us for WISHRM’s 2019 Day on the Hill
Join your SHRM colleagues from around the state at our 5th Annual WI SHRM Day on the Hill
event on Thursday, February 14, 2019! Day on the Hill provides you with the unique opportunity to travel to Madison for a day of education, advocacy, and networking opportunities with colleagues and legislators. The day will include an employment law update presented by Bob Gregg, a review of SHRM advocacy efforts and public policy updates from Meredith Nethercutt, Director for Member Advocacy, a panel discussion on employer sponsored student loan repayment, and other educational presentations. A networking lunch will be included. Check out the WISHRM website (http://www.wishrm.org/2019-Day-on-the-Hill
) for full details on speakers and topics.
Day on the Hill also provides a great opportunity for you to advocate on behalf of SHRM 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. Should you choose to participate in meetings with your legislator(s) at the State Capitol, WISHRM and SHRM's Government Affairs staff will pre-arrange those meetings for you in the afternoon. Materials will be prepared to help attendees discuss three main issues with their legislators:
- Alignment of state and federal family and medical leave provisions.
- Worker’s Compensation reform to restore a level of balance and fairness in the cost of healthcare under Worker’s Compensation.
- Legislation that would provide greater incentives for employers to sponsor student loan repayment.
Also, join us at Park Hotel on Wednesday, February 13, 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.
Registration by Friday, February 1 will help to ensure you are scheduled for a meeting with your legislator(s)!
