HR Today and Beyond Conference Postponed


The 6th Human Resource Conference for Local Governments originally scheduled for April 2020 has been postponed until June 2021. Because of the uncertainty and heavy workload of all local government offices, it was agreed that we reschedule the statewide conference for next year. We are hoping to retain all our planned presenters and will add new topics as they emerge. All registrants will receive an email regarding registration options.

In place of the conference, the HR Collaborative for Local Government will be organizing a series of webinars over the next six months on a range of HR Topics. The first webinar offered on April 17 on the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act was well attended and received rave reviews. This session offered key information on the Emergency Sick leave and Family Medical Leave provisions in the bill. If you were unable to attend the live webinar, it is available on the HR Collaborative Website at Remember to register under “Join Now” to get regular HR updates.

The HR Collaborative is very excited to announce the revised HR Reference Guide for Local Government has had a comprehensive review and will be available on our website by June 1. We plan to offer a webinar to review the major changes in policies later in the summer.

As local governments face many new challenges and opportunities, human resource management is often at the center of discussion. Please know that we are here to help you and plan to offer resources as they become available. Thank you all for helping to keep ND healthy and strong.
