This Senior Human Resources Director Forum will provide a platform and opportunity for Senior Human Resources Directors to exchange ideas freely, dissect problems, and discuss important issues with peers. You do not want to miss this opportunity!

Peer - to - peer sessions have proven very successful for IBA membership focus groups such as the CFO Forums, Senior Lender Forums, IT & Operations Forums. Based on feedback from the membership, this new Senior Human Resources Director Forum will be no exception.

Indiana Bankers Association is pleased to provide this program where individuals who are responsible for human resource-related issues in their institutions have the opportunity to discuss those concerns and explore collaborative solutions to problems they face on a day-to-day basis. Facilitated by the country’s largest law firm exclusively devoted to representing management in employment and labor law matters, Littler Mendelson, PC, this program is certain to prove an invaluable resource to those who participate.

Jerry Newsome, shareholder, Littler Mendelson, PC, will be the lead facilitator for the sessions. The agenda for each session will flow based on feedback from participants in the forum group. As necessary, subject matter experts will be brought in to cover specific issues and topics based on responses from the forum members.
