As we continue our coverage leading up to the 2015 SHRM Annual Conference in Las Vegas, I’m busy internet shopping and pre-packing. These days I only travel with my carry on luggage so I spend a great deal of time selecting my shoes, clothing and accessories. I don’t want to be that girl who looses her luggage and has to start from square one. My SHRM conference agenda is packed already.
The 2015 SHRM Annual Conference is nearly upon us. June 27-July 1 in sunny Las Vegas, 15,000 HR professionals will be joining together to connect, learn and share everything human resources and recruiting. SHRM Annual is one of my favorite conferences, but because of its size, it can be extremely overwhelming. It’s the reason we developed the Las Vegas Conference Guide as well as our unofficial party guide.
