applicable and profound. It's also a lot of fun!

                          SHRMA has awarded a $250 scholarship to Chelsey
                          Mueller from Southeast of Saline High School. Chelsey
                          is an outstanding student who plans to go on to college to
                          pursue a business degree. Congratulations Chelsey!

                                   Speaker Requests

The SHRMA President will periodically receive requests from organizations, schools, or other
SHRM chapter members for speakers. A group may be looking for a speaker on a specific
topic like sexual harassment training. A group may also request a speaker on broad HR
issues, etc. It is hard for one or two people to know all 100 SHRMA members. Our chapter
is attempting to create a speaker list that the President will pass on from year to year.

Placing your name on this list only means that the President will give your business contact
information to the person requesting a speaker on a subject that matches your expertise, and
they can contact you personally. Placing your name on the list does not mean that you are
committing to anything.

If you would be interested in being placed on a speaker list, please email me at

Please list any specific topics you've done in past presentations, otherwise, your name alone
would be fine. Thank you for your help.

September 20-22. You are able to register now and get the early bird price. If
you have not been, please consider going. It is a great time of networking and
gaining valuable HR knowledge. We have wonderful speakers such as
Governor Kathleen Sebelius, Johnny Taylor (from National SHRM), Hunter Lott
(our fall SHRMinar speaker) and many more. It is always a great time!

Hello everyone!

Time seems to fly by! We are already in May and so many things are going
on in the SHRMA Chapter. Here are a few of the things we are planning:
      -upcoming fall SHRMinar
      -fall certification study group
      -joint meeting with Manhattan for August
      -special breakfast meeting June 27
      -co-sponsoring a Dress For Success Clothing Drive
      -a job mentoring program in the fall
All of these things are working toward our goals of "serving the
professional/advancing the HR profession". SHRMA is a great organization
to be a part of and I trust that you will find a way to get involved. If you are
thinking, "I don't go to very many of the meetings and I don't know very many
people", don't let that stop you. Becoming involved is the best way to get to
know people and make the connections. One of the best parts about being a
SHRMA member is developing relationships and having people you can use
as a resource when questions come up in your job.

Please join us at our monthly meetings - 3rd Thursday of the month!
