West Michigan is fortunate to have a diverse business base but we are not immune from increasing legislative restrictions on the way we work. The Association is a reliable resource built upon long-term relationships and business partnerships to help you handle these realities by providing practical HR Solutions that promote operational excellence and business sustainability.

We are a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1939 to inform you of changing workplace regulations. We help you deal with “those things you do not control” so you can concentrate on the things you can – operational efficiency and profitability. Here is a summary of the services we offer. To learn more, call me directly, contact Ron Scott or look further within our website to learn how you can become a member!
