CFGI Mentioned – “Over 400 HR Pros Advocate on Capitol Hill for Workflex and Tax Reform During SHRM's Volunteer Leadership Summit”


“On Nov. 16, SHRM and its affiliate the Council for Global Immigration hosted over 400 HR professionals in Washington, D.C., for Advocacy Day during the annual SHRM Volunteer Leaders' Summit (VLS).

“This year's summit…provided the hundreds of volunteer leaders who participated in Advocacy Day a unique opportunity to discuss…key HR issues face to face with their lawmakers and congressional staff. Direct feedback from both SHRM volunteer leaders and congressional offices confirms that HR professionals are a trusted and valuable voice in sharing the workplace perspective on bills pending before Congress.

“…While another Advocacy Day is behind us, member advocacy continues year-round—and 2018 is already shaping up to be a critical year for HR to elevate its voice and serve as the thought leader on issues directly impacting the profession. It is more important than ever for HR professionals to remain engaged and serve as resources to lawmakers as they consider changes to existing workplace laws and develop new policies to meet the needs of an evolving workforce.”
