Notices of the upcoming SIG meetings are communicated by way of an e-blast that goes to all 700+ members at the beginning of each month. We offer a maximum of three program listings to outside organizations (those not-affiliated with Metro Milwaukee SHRM) wishing to promote their program with a one-line program description, the date, time, and location of the program, and a link to the organization's website for additional information and registration. Listings are for one-day educational events only and must be provided to the Metro Milwaukee SHRM office no later than the end of the month prior to the month of the program.
