SHRM Certification Lounge with Dr. Alex Alonso, VP Research for SHRM

    WA State HR Council Certification Presentations

    The Washington State HR Council, in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), is pleased to announce that Dr. Alexander Alonso, VP of Research for SHRM, will be visiting the Puget Sound area April 15 – 17. During his visit to the Northwest, Dr. Alonso is scheduled to do a series of presentations at local SHRM chapters about the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge.

    Every presentation will provide attendees the opportunity to see and hear about the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge and the new SHRM certifications, the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP. Several of the presentations will also include an accompanying “certification lounge” for individuals with a current HR certification to complete the SHRM online tutorial and earn their SHRM credential.

    To make Dr. Alonso’s presentations as accessible as possible to HR professionals in the Puget Sound area, five different Washington State SHRM chapters are hosting presentations during his visit to our state.

    Below is a list of Dr. Alonso’s presentations, with the date, time, location and registration information for each event. Please be sure to register in advance for the presentation you plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you in April!

    Thank you,
    Theresa Chow, SPHR, SHRM-SCP
    2015 WSHRC Director
