Your participation helps us to educate all HR professionals and mentor our future HR leaders!


Annually North Carolina SHRM sponsors a two and a ½ day conference in the fall of the year, drawing approximately 1,000 human resources professionals from across our great state. The Programs Committee strives each year to select a line-up of first class speakers, many nationally known, with the goal of allowing our attendees to hear and experience educational, informative and innovative speakers on a variety of topics.  Speakers are carefully evaluated and selected based on their proposed topics and individual qualifications including a reference check. For this reason, speaker substitutions are not permitted without prior approval from the conference planning committee. Before submitting a proposal, please be sure that you are able to keep your commitment to speak as scheduled, should you be selected.
