BEMIDJI, Minn. - A Regional Employer Support Network presentation outlining human resources basics for employers is scheduled from 9-11 a.m. Thursday, June 5, at the Bemidji State University Center for Research and Innovation, located at 3801 Bemidji Avenue North.

Presenting will be Susan Kaplan, human resources manager with the Potlatch Corporation and Lori Theis, representing Bi-County Community Action Program, Inc.
