“The Mid-West KY SHRM Chapter provides unique learning and networking opportunities for its members. The chapter also provides a vehicle for sharing ideas about how to resolve human resource problems and build new programs. I find it keeps me informed on what is shaping the human resources field. It is an invaluable part of my professional development.” …….G. Michael Barton, SPHR

“Being a member of my local SHRM chapter has not only provided me with a convenient way to meet and learn from other HR professionals, but it has also given me the opportunity to serve my chapter and the HR community in a meaningful way.  I very much enjoy the camaraderie that I share with my fellow chapter members.  It feels good to know that you have the support of people who understand the challenges and rewards of being in the HR profession.  I look forward to being a part of my chapter’s continued growth and development.”………LaSenna Powell, PHR
