Speaker and Sponsor Opportunities

The following is a tentative 2022 plan of topics for speaker, workshop, and sponsor opportunities. Meeting presentation preference will be given to presentations incorporating active learning (attendee participation). Meeting presentations must be able to be HRCI and SHRM credit approved. Deeper dive workshops are intended to be related to the meeting presentation topic. It is an opportunity to engage members in a smaller group and need not be HRCI or SHRM credit approved. Preference is given to workshop topics that most benefit members' skill or career development needs. 

  • Networking with PPT slides of members and Platinum Sponsor content from 11:30 a.m. to 11:59 a.m.
  • Meeting Presentations are the 2nd Friday of month from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Deeper Dive Workshop following meeting presentation from 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.
