2020 WI SHRM Day on the Hill is this week!
The 6th Annual WI SHRM Day on the Hill event is this week and it's not too late to register online!
Featured speakers include Bob Carragher, Vice President-State Affairs for National SHRM; Terri Dougherty, J.J. Keller and Associates, and Bob Gregg, Boardman Clark.
The WISHRM Day on the Hill provides you with the unique opportunity to travel to Madison, WI for a day of legislative insights, networking with colleagues, and the opportunity to meet with your elected officials at the Wisconsin State Capitol.† Whether you are a first-time or returning attendee, the experience will certainly provide you with one of the top state legislative hill days in the country, modeled after the successful SHRM Advocacy Hill Days on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.
The day of the event will begin with a public policy and SHRM Advocacy A-Team update from Bob Carragher, Vice President-State Affairs at National SHRM. We will then walk across the street as a group to the Wisconsin State Capitol for a quick photo opportunity and then attendees will have the opportunity to participate in scheduled morning meetings with state legislators or the option to take a guided tour of one of the nationís most beautiful state capitols.
For those participating in legislative meetings, your meetings with your State Senator, State Assembly Representative, and/or their staff will be scheduled in advance by WI SHRM. You will be provided with talking points and materials to discuss pending legislation as well as information about SHRM and WI SHRM to share with your elected officials. The goal will be to initiate or renew relationships with your legislators and share your stories and expertise as human resources professionals from their legislative districts. Meetings will last approximately 15 minutes. Several WISHRM volunteers will be available to accompany first-time attendees to their meetings by request, as available. Business attire is requested for those participating in legislative meetings.
The event will continue back at the Park Hotel with a networking lunch followed by our afternoon speakers. Attorney Bob Gregg of the Boardman Clark Law Firm will provide a legal and employment law update which be followed by Terri Dougherty of J.J. Keller & Associates with an informative presentation about how changing marijuana laws and increased illegal drug use is impacting our workplaces. Sessions will be submitted for preapproval of recertification credits.
