Diverse group of professionals in line behind a leading woman

The ARSHRM State Council will be holding its 2012-2013 Arkansas SHRM Leadership Conference on September 27th – 28th, 2012 at the Ozark Folk Center located in Mountain View, Arkansas.  The Leadership Conference is intended to educate, motivate and inform chapter leaders and state council members of their leadership role and state council activities and goals. We hope that each chapter leader and state council leader will make every effort to attend and learn so they can become better leaders for the HR profession. We hope to have near 100% chapter leader participation.


Also - any individual that the chapter is grooming for a leadership role is invited to attend!


Registration will be open Thursday morning at 9:00 a.m. and the official 2012 – 2013 Leadership Conference kicks off at 10:00 a.m. with a Brunch.

Thursday evening will be reserved for attendees to attend the Music Theater show at 7:00 p.m. at the Ozark Folk Center.  (Tickets can be purchased for $11.50 through the Ozark Folk Center by calling 1-870-269-3851.  Tickets also include entrance to the Craft Village)

The highlight of our conference will be a Team Building Leadership Outing, on Friday, at LocoRopes located adjacent to the Ozark Folk Center.  Activities will include both ground and short line ropes team building activities.  Attendees will also be able to purchase additional rope activities if desired to experience after the conference is over.

The conference will end with a lunch on Friday leaving time to enjoy the Ozark Folk Center or travel back to your home in the afternoon.
