COMPLIMENTARY SYMPOSIUM REGISTRATION: If selected as a concurrent session presenter, you receive a complimentary Full Conference registration.
MARKETING POLICY: Our 28 years of experience has proven that knowledgeable speakers who provide their audiences with practical information on important issues in a professional manner will naturally attract potential clients. Therefore, presenters agree to refrain from using their presentation as a promotional opportunity for their company's products or services. Neither SHRM nor HRCI will grant credit for sales/marketing presentations.
UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY: In each concurrent session time block, there is one session identified as a "UNIQUE SESSION." These sessions are intended to be interactive with experiential learning, delivered in a large, open area with round tables and NO PowerPoint. If you would like to propose a Unique Session, check the box on the proposal form and we will contact you to discuss your concept.
