    SHRM ADVOCACY TEAM: SHAPING HR PUBLIC POLICY
     
    As an HR professional, you are uniquely positioned to shape the development of federal and state workplace laws and regulations.   This presentation takes you through the basic steps of becoming involved in the public policy process;  best practices for contacting, meeting, and building lasting relationships with elected officials and their staffs;  and effective ways to communicate the HR professional’s perspective on key workplace issues.    You will also learn about the initiative SHRM has launched to create a nationwide member advocacy network of HR Advocates, collectively known as the Advocacy Team, or A-Team.
     

    This program is presented by Bob Carragher from the SHRM Government Affairs Team.  As SHRM’s Senior State Affairs Advisor since May of 2006, Bob has been responsible for coordinating SHRM’s member advocacy and state legislative affairs operations.  A seasoned government relations professional with over 25 years experience in both the public and private sectors, Carragher began his career as a personal staff member to U.S. Senator Sam Nunn (D-GA).  He later served as a legislative liaison for a national labor law firm representing clients before Congress and the Executive Branch.

    This program has been approved for 1.0 Business Management and Strategy Recertification Credit Hours by the HR Cerification Institute.

    We would like to thank our sponsor, Keesler Federal Credit Union, for sponsoring this event.
