WMS Coordinator Meetings

The Washington State WMS Coordinator meetings are hosted by the State Human Resources Division (SHR) within the Office of Financial Management. Roundtables serve as a venue where WMS Coordinators with Washington State employers can learn about and discuss topics important to their business. They serve to update on WMS matters, share best practices and information and provide a networking opportunity among agencies.  These roundtable formatted meetings are open to WMS Coordinators from state agencies utilizing WMS positions.  While attendance is not required, it is highly encouraged.

There are no official meeting minutes.  If you are unable to attend a meeting, feel free to send a back-up or follow up with a peer to get highlights from the meeting.  Handouts will be posted on the WMS Coordinator shared site.

Be sure to request access to the WMS Coordinator shared site and request to get on our listserv for the most up-to-date information related to these sessions.

Meetings are typically held the 4th Thursday of every other month.
