Welcome to the Alaska SHRM State Council

Welcome to the Alaska SHRM State Council’s website!  We hope that you find the information presented through our site informative and helpful. Please take a moment to view your 2021 Board of Directors.  I feel fortunate to be serving along-side a group of top HR leaders dedicated to advancing the HR profession and serving HR professionals across our great State. 

Alaska is a unique place... not only because of the geographic location, but because of the vast area we serve. It the State Council’s desire to create synergies among our three (3) affiliated SHRM Chapters and three (3) Student Chapters to better serve the 900+ HR professionals in the State. But, we cannot do it alone. I and the rest of the Board look forward to hearing from you on how we can improve your experience as an HR professional in Alaska. 

In addition, the Alaska State Council also offers complimentary webinars held throughout the year on current topics for HR professionals.  Not long after the inception of the webinar program, the State Council received SHRM’s Pinnacle Award which is one of the top honors any state council can receive.   The webinar program continues to provide recertification credits and keeps HR professionals up to date on hot topics. Check the Meetings and Events tab for additional information and registration information.

In addition to professional develpment opportunities throughout the year, we strive to bring you quality conferences; which are typcially sold out events.  The 2021 Alaska State HR Conference will be held September 22 - 24, in Anchorage!  Be sure to save the date and  register early! 

On behalf of your State Council, we thank you for your ongoing support and invite you to bookmark our page http://alaska.shrm.org and stay connected with us via FacebookLinkedIn or Twitter to get up-to-date information on complimentary educational opportunities, articles of interest and more.

It is a privilege to serve as your State Council Director.  I appreciate the work by the current and former State Council directors who created the foundation for us today.  And, again, thank all of you for your support and participation.  Together we will continue to advance the HR profession and serve the Alaska HR professionals into the future!

Ann Kjera - Alaska SHRM State Council Director

 

The Alaska State HR Conference 2021 is fast approaching. We are looking forward to our in-person conference next week at the Hilton Anchorage. 

The Council wanted to update all attendees on our plan to safely gather. All current gathering guidelines from the CDC, the State and the City will be followed.

We are requiring that masks be worn inside the hotel at all times. If you are experiencing any illness symptoms, please do not attend the event.

We are committed to creating a safe environment to meet in-person. We will be using social distancing with our seating plan, offering boxed lunches and other safety measures.

If there are any changes, we will advise as soon as possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any specific questions or concerns.

Thank you again for your support and participation in this year's conference! 



Register today to reserve your spot. We can't wait to see you!
