September 17: CASHRM Program and Dinner


This Program has been CANCELLED due to inclement weather.


Join us at the Crowne Executive Plaza at 5:30 PM for a program with Kelly Ziemkiewicz, Director of Health Coaching with Interactive Health. She is going to talk about stress and the effect it has in the workplace.  She will discuss how to recognize the signs and how to help your employees cope and then tie it into company expense – lost work days, higher claims and medical premiums. Kelly will also present tools to bring back to the office to decrease our stress and show the ROI of using them.

November 5: CASHRM Program and Breakfast


Join us at the Crowne Executive Plaza at 7:30 AM as Ann Kruse discusses Leadership Agility:  the Key to Competitive Success.  Today’s world of complexity and rapid change requires leaders who operate at a high level of Agility. Being a “strategic thinker” is no longer adequate.  The organization that can develop Agility in its leaders will have a competitive advantage.  However, Agility is missing in many organizations’ leadership competency models and development strategies. How might this matter for your organization’s business success and what can you do about it?  In this session, you will learn what Agility is, how it can lead to business success, and HR’s role in developing Agility in the organization’s leaders.  Register here
