President's Pen

By Leigh Crick, SHRM-CP

All In!

I was thrilled to represent IndySHRM at this year’s Annual Conference in New Orleans. If you were there, I hope you got as much out of the experience as I! I always come back feeling energized and excited, and this year was no exception.

If you were not able to attend the annual conference, have no fear, because a little bit of the Big Easy is coming to Indianapolis in August. HR Indiana 2017, our state SHRM conference, is August 28th – 30th at the JW Marriott and Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indy. Registration is still open at http://hrindianaconference.org/ . I hope to see you there!
