#ILSHRM13 - A Sort of Homecoming

I'll be there
I'll be there...
A high road
A high road out from here

In two weeks from today, the 2013 14th ANNUAL ILLINOIS HR CONFERENCE & EXPOSITION will begin at Drury Park in Oakbrook Terrace, and I will be serving on their social media team, hopefully bringing you the highlights of the events.

Much like a person has a bucket list of seeing all the Major League Baseball or NFL Stadiums, this will be my 4th state SHRM conference (having attended the Wisconsin, Mississippi and Texas (aka HR Southwest).  I'm not sure I will hit all the state SHRM conferences, but a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step, as the adage goes.

Attending the Illinois HR Conference will also serve as a sort of homecoming as I attended graduate school at the University of Illinois Institute of Labor and Industrial Relations (now the School of Labor and Employment Relations) in Champaign in the early-90s.  This is where my passion for human resources began, and where it continues today with events such as this.

So, if you haven't signed up for the conference, it is not too late to attend.  You can register here.

If you haven't already checked out the great list of talent presenting, check out the lineup here

If you are attending, check out the great mobile app by Bizzabo (and sponsored by Symbolist) to help with planning which sessions to attend and to connect with others at the conference.  Also, don't forget to register for the Monday After Hours Social here.

Hope to see you at Drury Lane in a couple of weeks.
