March 2016 Meeting News
The Northwest Mississippi SHRM chapter (#696) was organized in 2004 to better serve the human resources practitioners in the northwestern corner of Mississippi encompassing the counties of Marshall, Tunica, Tate, and Desoto and is the ‘youngest’ chapter in the State.
Membership is comprised of a diverse group of human resources professionals at all levels of management and in most all discipline categories. Their public and private sectors employers run the full gamut from associations, government, third party service providers, healthcare, manufacturers, hospitality – lodging and gaming, distribution centers, 3rd Party logistics firms, professional firms, and other service providers.
The chapter is extremely proud to have attained SHRM National recognition as a ‘Chapter of Merit’ in 2007.
The chapter’s annual H/R training seminar, with tracks for both the seasoned as well as more entry level practitioner, has been well received by both member and non member employers and employees. The training is normally scheduled in September. Please check the Events and Meeting page for information on this year’s training program.
In addition, the chapter encourages our members to participate in the Centre Group/MSCA annual salary survey.
