President's Message

I am honored to serve you as SHRM Olympia 2023 Chapter President this year!  We have an amazing group of HR Professionals serving on our Board of Directors again this year who will be working hard to ensure we continue to provide our members and guests with the highest-quality information and programs.

We are excited to plan and host hybrid events all year allowing you to either attend our outstanding events in-person or on Zoom as your schedule allows.  Although, we do hope that you come see us in-person so we can re-kindle our HR Professional Networking relationships that were placed on hold these last few COVID-19 years.

All upcoming events and registration links for SHRM Olympia, WA SHRM, NHRMA, and SHRM National events can be found HERE.

As a SHRM Preferred Provider, we will ensure that our programs are pre-approved for both SHRM and HRCI credits to meet your recertification needs.  Credit codes will be provided following event attendance.

If you are a SHRM National member, please designate SHRM Olympia as your primary chapter.  By doing this, SHRM provides financial support that helps provide you with the programs and SHRM / HRCI credits you need.

As Federal, State, and Local laws are developed and modified, we will diligently work to keep you as up to date as possible through our website and throughout the year with outstanding presenters on Employment  Law topics so you can be at the top of your Human Resources game in your employment.

If you are a local employer with an HR related job opening, we would be more than happy to post your job announcement for FREE!  You can locate our job board HERE!  Email us at for additional information.

If you are interested in speaking at one of our events, our Programs Directors would love to hear from you at

Don’t forget to follow us on Social Media at LinkedIn Company, LinkedIn Group, Facebook, and Twitter

I truly look forward to serving our outstanding HR Professionals in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Grays Harbor, and Pacific Counties and hope to see you at our events this year!
