West Central Arkansas SHRM Managers Seminar

2011 Pinnacle Award Winner

Started in 2004 as a means of offering training programs to area managers at a low cost, the West Central Arkansas SHRM chapter hosts an annual Managers Seminar. In its 8 years, the chapter has trained 766 managers and supervisors representing 248 companies. The Managers Seminar has raised over $50,000 for the chapter, and has proven to be a successful seminar with repeated attendees saying “I’ll be back next year.”  In 2011, the chapter trained 261 managers raising $8800 for the chapter. In our first year in 2004, we earned $1,594 with 53 attendees.  The seminar is a one day event that starts with a motivational keynote speaker and then breaks out into five hours of concurrent topics. Topics are directed towards supervisors and managers ranging from Hiring to Firing, with everything in between to Dealing with Difficult Employees, Delegation, Performance Reviews, Motivating Employees and more. Over the 8 years, we have had 60 topics with 41 speakers.  The success of the seminar has led the chapter to decide not to charge local chapter dues for SHRM members, in hopes of increasing its SHRM member percentage and leading to a 100% chapter by encouraging local members only to join SHRM.
