    Please join us for our first ever VOLUNTEER NIGHT!

    Anyone interested in learning about volunteering with SRKA is invited to attend this complimentary event!  Our focus will be on building a committee to focus on Workforce Readiness initiatives in our local communities.  There are many exciting and rewarding opportunities to volunteer in this arena.  Our Workforce Readiness Director, Tim Leonard will be sharing examples of these opportunities.  

    We will also have our President, Jane Kurylo and other Board members present to field inquires about volunteering in other areas such as Diversity, College Relations, SHRM Foundation, Government Affairs or Chapter Management activities like Programming, Marketing, Accounting Audits, Membership, etc. 

    Registration and networking will begin at 4:30 and the session will start promptly at 5:00.  

    The session will be held in the lower level of the Charcoal Grill for about 45 minutes and we will head upstairs for complimentary drinks and appetizers.  Each attendee will receive one drink ticket and we hope you will stay for additional networking and S'mores on the Patio (weather permitting).  


    If you have any issues registering, please contact Jane Kurylo at jkurylo1@wi.rr.com or 414-217-6700.

    Barriers to Employment - How can HR Get Involved?

    Session Objectives:

    · Discuss the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article (Foxconn's promised jobs boom could miss neighboring city Racine) and what this information means for local workforce development and employers.

    · Discuss how local alignment between stakeholders can address employment issues.

    · Identify how local employers can actively engage to create alignment and share needs across sectors.

    Please read the article linked above.  It is very eye opening from an HR standpoint.  

    While this article is specifically about workers in Racine, Kenosha workers face many of the same issues.  With the arrival of Foxconn and other new employers to the area, we should be thinking on more of a regional basis.  This session isn't just for Racine employers. 

     Kenosha has a similar organization called Building Our Future.  This organization is focusing more on children and schools at this point so they will not be presenting to SRKA at this time.  They are working with our future generations of employees.
