    After much consideration and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone the South Puget Sound SHRM March breakfast meeting.  The board has determined that, given the COVID-19 event that is unfolding, the best and safest course of action for the chapter and our members is to postpone and issue refunds to those who have already registered for this event.  

    Fortunately our speaker, Nancy Kasmar, has agreed to present at our July 16, 2020 meeting instead, so you'll have another opportunity to hear her dynamic and engaging presentation on compensation later this year!  The event will be posted on our website soon, so stay tuned.  

    Finally, we have posted a hub of COVID-19 employer response resources on our website to help educate and guide our members during an uncertain time.  We have included links to public health sources, guides and suggestions for employers, links to few webinars, and more.  Check back for updated resources as they come available.

    Our number one priority is the safety and health of our members!  We will be continually monitoring the situation and making adjustments accordingly.  Thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility!


    Please welcome
