One thing I’ve noticed from last year to this year at SHRM there seems to be smaller amount of after hour parties as part of the 2011 SHRM Annual Conference. That could be largely due to the fact that Vegas is packed full of shows, events, and entertainment for days. Or maybe I’m just not cool enough to be invited. Sometimes these things happen at the last minute at least that’s what I’m telling myself. I’m sure the amount of outside activity choices is the reason and not the $20,000 minimim cost to reserve a cocktail room in Vegas for a two hour soire. Otherwise, you’d be seeing a Blogging4Jobs tweetup I promise you.
I’ve combed the web for you to find some events, activities, and after hours meetups happening during the 2011 SHRM Annual Conference. If you have one (a SHRM party) I didn’t mention, be sure to include it in the comments with a link for registration and I’ll add it to the list.
