This annual conference is targeted at the volunteer board members of our ILSHRM Chapters. The focus of this conference is to offer attendees a chance to network and learn best practices that will help them strengthen the work of their local SHRM Chapter. Each year this session offers a deeper understanding of how SHRM, the Illinois State Council of SHRM and Chapters support the HR Professional. Area of focus may include workforce readiness, certification, diversity, governmental affairs, membership, special statewide projects, and more! This conference also provides several sessions that provide professional development opportunities for this group of volunteer leaders.
