    On behalf of Scott McGarvey, SPHR and the entire Leadership Conference committee, I am excited to invite you and your 2016-17 board members to attend the 2016 KYSHRM Leadership Conference on Wednesday, December 7 - Friday, December 9 at Cincinnati Marriott RiverCenter in Covington, KY.

    All current 2016 and newly elected 2017 chapter board members are invited to attend the conference.  Although the entire board is not required to be at the event, we do strongly recommend you bring as many members as possible to benefit from this very informative event as well as quality time with your board. The state council leadership feels that this program is so important for our statewide chapter leaders that we are once again providing it for FREE for all of the attendees thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and some subsidizing by the money we earned from the state conference. The council will pay for the conference registration, all group meals at the event as well as your overnight room accommodations. (We will pay for 1 night (Thursday only) for all 2016 and 2017 chapter leaders and 2 nights for all 2016 and 2017 State Council members which includes the 2016 and 2017 chapter presidents.)

Please be sure to explain to your board members that they will need to read the options of registration carefully and only register for the events that apply to them. (For example, no one other that the current 2015 and the incoming 2016 state council members need to attend the welcome reception on Wednesday as well as the state council meeting on Thursday morning. So if they do not fit into one of these categories we will NOT be able to pay for their extra room night required to attend these events. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at
