ATTENDEES

The 2019 KS SHRM State Conference will host 500+ attendees, the majority of whom will include, senior Human Resources (HR) professionals, supervisors, managers, and directors currently practicing in the Human Resources field.

SPEAKERS

The Conference will include subjects and topics in the HRCI Body of Knowledge and SHRM Body of Competency & Knowledge. All presentations will meet the criteria for recertification credit from both SHRM and HRCI.
