WV SHRM State Council's HR Day at the Legislature

Meet at YWCA - Charleston at 8:45AM for training session by Bob Carragher, SHRM’s Senior State Affairs Advisor, who will provide a 60-minute presentation on “SHRM Advocacy Team."  Those who cannot be at the YWCA may meet the group in the lower rotunda of the Capitol at 10:30 in the SHRM Chapter/State Council display area. 

Pre-approved for 1 hr. HRCI Strategic Credit

As an HR professional, you are uniquely positioned to shape the development of federal and state workplace laws and regulations.   This presentation takes you through the basic steps of becoming involved in the public policy process; best practices for contacting, meeting, and building lasting relationships with elected officials and their staffs; and effective ways to communicating the HR professional’s perspective on key workplace issues.    You will also learn about the initiative SHRM has launched to create a nationwide member advocacy network of HR Advocates, collectively known as the Advocacy Team, or A-Team.


Parking at YWCA is free.  Participants will travel as a group to the State Capitol and meet in the lower Rotunda area at the SHRM Chapter/State Council display area. 

The group will be recognized by the Legislature at the 11:00AM Floor Session and meet with members of the Legislature.

Dining is available in the newly re-opened cafeteria until 2:00 p.m. The group may meet there at 1:00 or 1:15? 

Everyone will head home or back to work around 2:00PM.
