    Human Resource Management Network (HRMN), in Manhattan, KS is hosting a study group for any individuals that are interested in obtaining either SHRM or HRCI certification this Fall. The study group will meet once a week for twelve weeks to prepare for the exam.

    The group will study for SHRM or HRCI, so the group will have to agree on which exam to study for. Participants will purchase their own study materials (at a group discounted rate).  Facilitators from HRMN will lead the study group and help prep for the exam.

    This is a great opportunity for those that have been interested but haven’t yet taken that leap, or for those that are ready to study for the next level exam.

    SHRM is accepting applications NOW through August 15, 2019, for members interested to take either the SHRM CP or SCP exam in 2019.

    Please contact Robyn Harris, HRMN Certification Director if you are interested in this opportunity!, or 785-323-3893.

    I am writing to you today to ask for your involvement in a workgroup to complete our 2019 Excel Award initiatives. This year, we are planning to apply for, and receive, the Platinum Award. To be considered for a Platinum Award requires four initiatives that fall into three different categories. Since we are taking on four initiatives, we want to include you! 

    Participation in a workgroup could include; taking a leadership role, planning, documentation, or simply providing ideas and feedback. Each workgroup would be responsible for assigning an award category, setting an official goal/objective, outlining the work towards accomplishing that goal, and documenting the outcome/result of the initiative. I plan to participate in each workgroup and provide guidance towards the successful completion of these four initiatives. You can review the 2019 SHRM Excel Awards Brochure if you would like more information.

    Our Human Resources Management Network board members submitted seven great ideas for initiatives, and the following are the top four votes:

    • Student SHRM Chapter Initiative: Support the KSU Student SHRM chapter by creating alliances between the HRMN and student chapter officers and members. Increase HRMN presence and attendance at their meetings and events, and increase student attendance to HRMN meetings.
    • HRMN Networking Event at State Conference: Create a HRMN sponsored networking event for members that attend the Annual State SHRM Conference, providing additional opportunities to interact and talk about HR topics and build stronger work-relationships.
    • HR Professional of the Year Award Revamp: Revamp and update the HRMN HR Professional of the Year Award and use the new criteria to select the 2019 recipient.
    • HRMN Gives Back: Implement a philanthropy program where HRMN will donate money or items to select organizations. This initiative would increase HRMN’s participation with other organizations in the area, promote the group, and increase awareness in the community.

    In case you are not sure why we want to take on four initiatives, or why we want to include all of our HRMN members, here’s why: The Excel Award goals and initiatives allow us to increase our group visibility and effectiveness, as well as expand impact within the HR community. In short, we want to support our chapter members as well as our surrounding communities!

    So, if you would like to be more involved with HRMN, want to share your great ideas, or have a passion for any of the four ideas chosen – please let me know! I would like to have at least 2-3 members in each workgroup, and you can be in as many as you want. Please let me know by Friday, March 22, 2019 which group you would like to participate in.

    Thank you,

    Sara Wildin, SHRM-CP
    VP, Human Resource Management Network
