2018 Mission & Vision Registration Sponsor/Exhibit Become A Speaker

LWHRA 2018 Symposium Mission & Vision

“Connect” by getting to know our members better - allow enough time for participants to connect with each other and communicate with exhibitors/sponsors.

“Grow” our community and the number of SHRM participants. We are working on various ways to increase our LWHRA membership and provide special Symposium packages for attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors.

“Serve” by helping members become servant leaders. Our members can support each other in careers and jobs while volunteering in one of LWHRA’s Committees or Special Interest Groups.  Members have an opportunity to participate in the Mentorship Program in which mentors share their knowledge, skills, information, and perspective to foster the professional growth of mentees.
