Welcome to the Minnesota Chapter of IPMA-HR!

The local IPMA HR Board of Directors works to, among other things, create a forum within which local government HR professionals can learn about, discuss and collaborate on current and future issues that are critical to HR and local government. We are committed to help develop a community where information and ideas can be exchanged to support the local government HR community. To that end, the Board aims to provide helpful and timely learning opportunities for you, our members.

This year, the Board is planning to provide one all-day session in April and several half-day sessions throughout the year beginning in September. Our all-day conference is tentatively scheduled for April 23, 2020. We are using the results from our most recent membership survey to plan training sessions most relevant to you. The top three topics were performance management, employment law and leadership development. Please feel free to reach out to me any time with ideas, suggestions or questions.

Thank you for your continued support and participation in the Minnesota Chapter of IPMA-HR!
