It’s finally Fall Conference season!
Hopefully, you’ll have an opportunity to attend a few events to network, meet with a few vendors in an exhibit hall and learn from the keynote and concurrent sessions speakers.
First up for me this Fall is the 2011 Illinois SHRM Conference, which will be held August 21 – 23, 2011 in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. The #ILSHRM11 organizers have really embraced social media to communicate prior to, during and after the conference and also to educate their attendees. They’re got a great blog covering ILSHRM happenings year-around and have scheduled a pre-conference Social Media Bootcamp on Sunday with Jessica Miller-Merrell, as well as an entire track of speakers covering social media from a variety of perspectives. I’m excited about being a part of the Social Media Track, where I’ll be speaking about “Using Social Media In HR to Attract, Recruit & Retain Talent”!
Below is a brief video describing some of the speakers and events I’m excited about attending as part of the Illinois SHRM Conference (Email subscribers will need to click through to view the video.)
If you’ll be attending, please be sure to connect and let’s meet in person!
