Member Program Descriptions
What are Member Programs?
Member Programs are educational and networking opportunities (presentations, webinars, roundtables, etc.) to promote the growth of our members. They are offered at different times of the day (mornings, lunch hours and afternoons), at a variety of locations throughout the metro Milwaukee area. These programs are included as part of your membership at no additional cost to you. There is no need to join a group. As a member you will receive email notices from the MMSHRM office about upcoming programs. All you need to do is register to reserve your spot at the program. Many of our programs also offer SHRM recertification credit. We have a variety of Member Program Co-Chairs that organize events for our members.
