Human Resources

Special Interest Group


The focus of this group is to continue to build HR participation from HR constituents across Mid Michigan manufacturing organizations. This group finds value in the sharing of questions, thoughts, ideas, and best practices during our time together. We recently created a listserv to enable further conversations between our meetings and gain insight from one another.

The HR SIG group utilizes programs from the MMTC and Mid Michigan College to assist in internal succession planning and education of employees. Such programs/classes include: supervisory skills, communication, leadership, coaching/mentoring, difficult conversations, plus more! Stay tuned as programs/classes will be posted as available.


This group meets bi-monthly on the last Thursday of the month at the Morey Technical Center located on the Mid Michigan College Mt. Pleasant campus.

Upcoming meetings:

Thursday, January 30 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, March 26 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, May 28 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, July 30 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, September 24 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, November 19 | 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
