Welcome to the Minnesota Chapter of IPMA-HR!

Our Board strives to develop meaningful, timely, and accurate professional development and training sessions for our members.  We strive to give HR professionals at all levels the expertise needed to promote excellence in the public sector.

In 2018 the Board will be focused on planning our all-day conference on April 11 at the Crowne Plaza in Plymouth, MN as well as elections in June for new Board members and officers.  Beginning in the Fall we typically hold training programs in September and November.  We will continue to work with you, our colleagues, to create trainings relevant to your position in the public sector.

We are looking forward to a successful year for public HR professionals! Thank you for being part of our organization.
