2014 GBRSHRM Fall Conference

The annual GBRSHRM Fall Conference was a huge success this year with an unprecedented attendance of almost 200 participants!  The day began with a very special guest from SHRM national headquarters, Mary Mohney, who presented valuable information on the new SHRM certifications and answered questions from the audience.  The morning was then kicked off with a dynamic speaker, Joel Bishop, who challenged participants to consider the "Appreciation Experience."  And for the first year in GBRSHRM's Fall Conference history, there were five different tracks of concurrent sessions for participants to customize their own education to meet their individual professional development needs.  From digital recruitment to wellness, attendees were offered a wide variety of topics and levels from which to choose.  The day wrapped up with an eye-opening session by Laura Stack who offered several practical tips of how we can achieve a higher rate of personal productivity.  

I am so appreciative of everyone who dedicated their time and effort toward making this day of continuing education a success.  The GBRSHRM Fall Conference  could not be possible without the generous support of our platinum and gold sponsors.  Thank you to all the participants who visited the sponsor booths to learn how their services can help make us more effective in our jobs.  And last but not least, a very big "thank you" to the enthusiastic volunteers who planned the conference from start to finish!

Each year, GBRSHRM strives to make the conference bigger and better than the year before to meet the ever-evolving needs of local HR professionals.  If you were in attendance at this year's conference, you should have received an email requesting your input through a survey.  We value your feedback on this year's event and how we can offer another record-marking program next year.  As with any GBRSHRM initiative, we welcome feedback and suggestions at any time by emailing the Board of Directors at
gbrshrm@gbrshrm.org.

Best,
Mimi Singer, 2014 GBRSHRM President
