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 2019 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 four (4) 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. 

Now, you couldn't miss our icons on the right.  The Platinum EXCEL Award is a distinction conferred by SHRM as serves as an indicator of the State Council’s successful partnership with SHRM on your behalf.  It signifies the achievements in the networking and professional development needs of human resource professionals in Alaska and “the advancement of the human resources profession.”

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 and HR Academies which have been sold out events.  The 2020 Alaska State HR Conference will be held May 2020 in Anchorage !  Be sure to save the date and when possible 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!
