The Northwest Arizona Human Resource Association is presenting a professional development conference for the tri state area business community on July 22. Melissa Summerson, a Human Resources Generalist with Kingman Regional medical Center,  said information topics aim to help businesses promote a productive and successful workplace.

“Our keynote speaker will talk about how to handle dynamic change in business settings,” Summerson said. She said Congressman Paul Gosar and District 5 state representatives Regina Cobb and Sonny Borrelli will speak and take questions after lunch.

Summerson said an afternoon speaker will address how effective communication can help businesses retain valuable employee. She said the conference is ideal in that it brings resources and information to many businesses that might not have such expertise in-house.

Advance registration is required to attend the all-day conference, July 22, at Journey Church in downtown Kingman.
