IPMA-HR Central Region President's Welcome
Welcome to the IPMA-HR Central Region website.
It is an honor to be elected as President of the Central Region of IPMA-HR. I look forward to serving in this new role over the next 12 months.
I am proud to be a part IPMA-HR, the leading public sector human resource organization in the world. An organization that represents the interests of human resource professionals at all levels and strives to promote excellence in human resources management.
During the next year I will be working with the new Central Region Board to:
· • Deliver an outstanding training program as part of the 81st IPMA-HR Central Region Training Conference. The 2017 conference will be held right in my own back yard in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul from June 4 to June 7.
· • Work with new Central Region Chapter Presidents and IPMA-HR Leadership to identify opportunities to strengthen chapters that are currently struggling. We need to explore how to leverage the successes of the Greater Kansas City and Minnesota Chapters to other parts of the Central Region. What can we learn from the Eastern Region, the Southern Region and the Western Region moving forward?
• Engage and tap the energies of first time attendees from the 2016 Central Region Conference in St. Louis to explore the creation of new chapters in Illinois, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
· • Review the bylaws of the IPMA-HR Central Region to identify opportunities for improvement and to ensure they are serving the interests of all members.
Thank you for bestowing upon me the opportunity to serve as President of the Central Region of IPMA-HR for the 2016-2017 calendar year. Please feel to contact me at any time.
