SoDak SHRM Legislative Day 2019 | 5 February 2019
Every year in January and February, elected officials from across the state converge in our state’s Capitol building in Pierre for several intense weeks known as the Legislative Session. The work of these public servants shapes policy and legislation within South Dakota, which impacts the business community and therefore is of interest to the human resources community.
On 5 February, the SoDak SHRM State Council cordially invites all local chapter, at-large, and A-Team SHRM advocates to join us in Pierre to learn more about the political processes that create new bills for discussion and voting within the state house and senate bodies.
Our day will begin bright and early as we provide breakfast for our legislators. We will attend committee session meetings and hear from Cabinet-level officials. Our SoDak SHRM lobbyist, Julie Johnson, will present to us on the current issues and bills our legislature has for consideration this session. We will enjoy lunch, and then return to the Capitol building to be introduced in both the house and senate floors.
You won’t want to miss this day of networking, professional development, and learning about our state’s public policy. We also seek to educate the legislature about SHRM and the human resources community of professionals active within South Dakota. Contact our Legislative Director, Leah.Brink@daktroncis.com, with any questions.
