Dear Western Region Chapter Leaders and Members,
I am so excited and truly honored to serve as your 2022-2023 Western Region IPMA-HR President. I joined IEPMA-HR, a local chapter of WRIPMA-HR in 2013. The information received during workshops and conferences provided substantial learning and development, as well as networking opportunities. After several years of membership, I joined the IEPMA-HR Board, serving as Secretary, President-Elect, and President. In 2021, I was nominated to serve as 2nd Vice President on the Board of Western Region IPMA-HR and have now succeeded to serve as President.
Your Western Region IPMA-HR Board and I are committed to making this a highly informative and exciting year, comprised of continuing professional development, chapter recognition, and networking opportunities. We will strive to provide meaningful experiences through our webinars and conferences, focusing on professional and leadership development, education and training, and networking to advance your career.
The Board and I are looking forward to providing you with a dynamic conference experience this year, in Salt Lake City, Utah! The conference is scheduled to take place April 30, 2023, through May 3, 2023. If you are not already following us on LinkedIn, please start following today to ensure that you are receiving the most current information about the conference, webinars, and other training and development opportunities https://www.linkedin.com/company/western-region-ipma-hr/about/.
I would like to thank the Board and Chapter Leaders for their dedication and contributions. Collectively, our region has outstanding Chapters and steadfast members that we all can be proud of.
If you are not a member or Chapter Leader, I encourage you to join and/or get involved. A complete list of local Chapters is located on our website at https://wripma-hr.org/chapterslist.
Now that we have transitioned back to in-person gatherings, I hope I am able to meet many of you, either at the National Conference in Washington, DC https://www.ipma-hr.org/annual-conference/2022/ipma-hr-annual-conference-2022, or at the Western Region Conference in Salt Lake City. Let’s have a great Program Year!
Kisha McDonald, PHR
Western Region IPMA-HR President
