Pat Bowie, the director of training and development for International Franchise Systems (IFS), owners of the Rent-A-Wreck, Priceless, and Nextcar brands, recently visited Capitol Hill with the Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM) Maryland team.

SHRM members from all over the U.S. attended the Day on the Hill visit.

"Every office we encountered, the staff members told us how much they look forward to SHRM members' visits," said Bowie, known as Pat The Trainer. "We are their voice of reality and we provide them with a Cliff-note education on human resources issues. They valued our input and feedback on all aspects of human resources."
