The WI SHRM State Conference Planning Committee has been monitoring and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, following guidance from the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Meanwhile, please check out the SHRM website ( for the latest in news and resources for you and your organization.

May 7, 2020:  We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 and potential impacts on our event in October.  If circumstatnces arise and we find it necessary to cancel our event, we will refund 100% of registration fees paid by sponsors, exhibitors and attendees.

July 17, 2020:  
Our hope was to bring the WI SHRM HR community together in October, but after careful deliberation and planning, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s WI SHRM State Conference. The well-being of our members, families, employers, and communities was paramount to our decision.

We plan to hold our 2021 WI SHRM State Conference as scheduled and are grateful to the Kalahari Resorts and Convention Center for working with us. We are also thankful to our conference committee, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors for your understanding and dedication to the HR profession.

COVID-19 has presented us all the opportunity to think, act, and live differently. Our approach to how we define, and balance work and home is forever changed. As an HR community, we are here to support each other, serve as an outlet to ask questions, request assistance, and share ideas. Please visit our website for contact information of the entire WI SHRM team and our SHRM representatives, we are here to serve and support you.

Our chapters continue to provide learning and training opportunities that will help you continue to not only earn recertification credits but will also keep you up to date in the ever-changing profession of Human Resources. Additionally, SHRM has acknowledged the uncountable hours HR professionals have dedicated to supporting their organizations’ and communities’ COVID-19 needs by introducing a new recertification PDC option related to COVID-19.   More details on this program can be found HERE at

Thank you for all your hard work, dedication, and expertise during these challenging times and your contributions to the WI SHRM community.

WI SHRM State Director
