The 2018 Leadership Development Program builds on the body of competency knowledge which supports the SHRM certifications (SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP) and reinforces our commitment to developing leaders of MT|SHRM and our HR community. The program will run May 30th through Nov. 28th (most sessions are in the evening). A half-day capstone event and graduation luncheon is held on Dec. 12th.

The program is a 6-month highly experiential course and is intended for mid-level HR professionals who are emerging leaders seeking to develop their leadership skills. Members who currently hold PHR or SHRM certifications will benefit from exposure to the competencies and can receive up to 25 pre-approved credits and up to an additional 11 self-reported credits.

The following competency areas from the SHRM certifications will be covered:

Relationship Management
