WRIPAC would like to invite you to join us for our free meeting in Torrance, California on June 7-8th. There is no charge to attend WRIPAC meetings which consist of speakers on current topics and the opportunity to network with other public sector human resources professionals.  During the meeting, we have a  “roundtable”  discussion where participants bring questions to the group to get advice and benefit from the experience of our colleagues. We’re often told that this roundtable is the best part of the meeting.  We encourage attendees to come prepared to seek advice or share information regarding interesting or innovative initiatives from their agencies. Meetings are held 3 times a year, generally alternating between Northern and Southern California.

Guest speakers for our June meeting include Michael Hurwitz, Co-Founder/President for Careers in Government who will be talking about social media strategies for public agencies, and Sherri Adams, Risk Manager for Solano County who will be talking about taking a holistic approach to employee wellness programs.

We are also offering two optional pre-meeting pieces of training. (The early registration deadline is this Friday, so we encourage you to sign up now to lock in the discount!)
