SHRM 2019 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
This year the national conference is being held from June 23-26 in Las Vegas. If you haven’t registered yet, get over to SHRM.org and get on it! This year’s party list has been a challenge and vendors are keeping their parties and events right now close to their vest. I will be adding new parties, receptions, and events as I find them. In order to receive them first, my best suggestion for you is to text SHRM to 55678.
HOW TO NAVIGATE THE HUMAN RESOURCE CONFERENCE AND PARTIES IN VEGAS
There is so much good food and nightlife in Vegas and it’s magnified during the Annual SHRM Conference. Look for fun informal meetups, dinners and cocktail receptions as well as attendee-organized sightseeing. I’ll be including as much as I am able on the party list. My best suggestion in terms of staying up to date on these events is to sign up for the text group by texting ‘SHRM’ to 55678. Generally, new events come to me via email during the conference or by one of my party spies who is working to provide you with a complete list of activities and events to enjoy SHRM to its fullest.
