    MISHRM Council Updates

    MISHRM Executive Council Upcoming Elections - the MISHRM Executive Council positions are up for elections for the 2019-2020 term.  The positions are 2 year positions and include Director Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer.  The Director Elect role is 2 years followed by 2 years as Director, and then followed by 2 years as Immediate Past Director for a total of 6 years.  The Secretary and Treasurer roles are 2 year terms with the option of being re-elected for another 2 year term.  If you have an interest or know of someone who would enjoy joining the MISHRM Executive Council, please contact Michele Ruppal or Shawn Premer.  We will have candidates introduce themselves at the August Council Meeting followed by an e-ballot for voting.  It truly is an amazing and rewarding experience!  I encourage you to consider stepping into a new leadership role in support of the SHRM Chapters, SHRM membership, and HR professionals in Michigan.  

    MISHRM's Summer Council Meeting - August 23 & 24 in Lansing (agendas will be issued in late July). Day two will be a half day concluding by 12 Noon.  Our host hotel, The Candlewood Suites (attached to The Henry Center), is holding a block of rooms for us until August 8th.  You must make your own reservation, but the room will be billed directly to MISHRM (note to Chapter Presidents: MISHRM pays for one room night per Chapter with a few exceptions).  The rooms are offered first-come/first-serve, and reservations can be made at (

    On the Candlewood web site, after you’ve indicated the date range for your stay, enter the code RBC into the Group Code field and click “Check Availability.”  This will adjust the rates to our group’s negotiated rate ($89) and will allow for proper billing to MISHRM.  They will ask for your credit card info in case there are incidentals charged to the room.  If you prefer to call the hotel directly, call 517.351.8181 and request a reservation with “Michigan Society for Human Resource Management.” 

    MISHRM's Speaker Bureau is up and running thanks to the hard work of Kerry Klee-Tiesman, MISHRM Program Director.  We are seeking recommended speakers from you in hopes of assisting your chapters in finding qualified speakers in the future.  Our Resource Partners are included and have some outstanding presentations to deliver as well.  This is housed on /Resources page.

    MISHRM's Annual Conference & Exhibition - RSVP before the end of June for early bird rates.  Agenda and speakers will be posted by next week as well. Be sure to share with your members to select your chapter as their home chapter when registering to apply their attendance towards your chapter member count.  Discounted rates at both the Traverse City Resort & Spa and the Turtle Creek Casino are available.
