Recently, the board of directors for the Mississippi Chapter of IPMA-HR met to approve the chapter bylaws, thereby establishing Mississippi’s first chapter of the international organization. IPMA-HR is the International Public Management Association for Human Resources, the leading public sector human resource organization in the world. Representing the interests of human resource professionals at all levels and striving to promote excellence in HR management, IPMA-HR has been a resource for comprehensive and timely HR industry news, jobs, policies, resources, education, and professional development opportunities since 1906.

Mississippi chapter board members include Secretary of State Michael Watson, Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs, Sumner Davis of the MSU Extension Service, Joe Goff of the Department of Education, Toni Johnson of the Department of Mental Health, and MSPB’s Kelly Hardwick and Jan Sims.

The chapter’s organization was spearheaded by the Mississippi State Personnel Board. “We are excited about the opportunity for professional development for state employees in HR as well as HR employees in local and county government in Mississippi,” says MSPB Executive Director Kelly Hardwick. “We look forward to the opportunities and networking that being affiliated with an international organization provides.”

The inaugural meeting of the Mississippi Chapter of IPMA-HR will take place virtually on Thursday, April 8.  This meeting is open to all HR professionals in the public sector in Mississippi.  There is no cost to attend.
