SHRM St. Louis prides itself on hosting high-quality, innovative and interactive programming at each monthly meeting. Topics cover the full range of responsibilities handled by human resources professionals through monthly meetings. SHRM St. Louis plans and conducts an annual legal update program (usually in February) including roundtable discussions led by local employment attorney experts. Other annual events include the Committee Fair, which encourages membership involvement and engagement, and the Business Partner Expo (October, as part of the SHRM St. Louis Conference), which showcases the invaluable products and services that SHRM St. Louis' business partners can provide to the members. All human resources professionals - from students to seasoned C-suite executives - will benefit from the education programming offered by the chapter each month.
Meetings from September through May are generally scheduled on the third Wednesday of each month, as either breakfast or dinner meetings at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel by the airport. Summer programs are held at various locations around the metropolitan area and are usually breakfast events. Occasionally, extremely special programs are held in unique venues such as the 70th Anniversary meeting, which was held at Busch Stadium.
All programs provide members with general or strategic recertification credit for HRCI, and credit for SHRM certification. For meetings that combine pre-dinner and dinner presentations, a full two hours of credit can be earned in one evening. All meetings are great networking and sponsorship opportunities for regular members and business partners.
