Message from the President

Greetings HRMA members and welcome to October! Fall is here and so is the 2017 HRMA Leadership Conference. We could not be more excited to welcome all of our fantastic speakers, including Bob Chapman and Rocky Sickmann! We also have a few other very special surprises in store, so if you have not yet registered please do so here. There are also a few sponsorship opportunities still available, but you need to act fast.
I can't wait to see everyone on October 27th at the Ameristar St. Charles!
