    It is March of 2018, where has the time gone? President Trump has finished his first year in the White House; he and Congress face a number of public policy challenges in the year ahead as well as our Illinois state legislators in an exciting gubernatorial election year. 

    We are very excited to present the ILSHRM and CIC-SHRM Annual Legislative Conference on April 17, 2018 at the Memorial Center for Innovation and Learning in Springfield, Illinois.

    This conference will pack the punch with the latest legislative updates, compliance and regulatory issues, and a unique opportunity to hear from legislators on current hot topics! Rep. Sara Wojciciki Jimenez kicks off the event talking about Sexual Harassment, followed by our Legislators and Agency Directors Panel. Hot topics this year are the Legalization of Marijuana in Illinois, Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity Discrimination and the Illinois Biometrics Privacy Act.
