A word from the president...

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Society for Human Resources Management of SouthWest Kansas we welcome to our website. We are an affiliate of SHRM - the Society for Human Resource Management which is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management.

Society for Human Resources Management of SouthWest Kansas (SHRM of SWKS) became an affiliated chapter of Society for Human Resources Management on April 14, 2011. SHRM of SWKS formed in Garden City to serve small business owners, human resource professionals and anyone else who deals with human resource issues in South West Kansas.

As the Chapter President, I am here to serve and benefit you and your company; I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to attend our meetings.
