SHRM Conference

The SHRM annual conference is a good place to learn about HR professional development. The conference gives attendees access to tools and resources needed by companies to implement successful HR practices. The SHRM conference offers over 200 concurrent sessions which offer a complete education for HR professionals at every stage of their career, based on the SHRM Competency Model. Attendees can therefore choose topics which would help them gain skills that would impact their organizations. The conference also provides a platform for networking and gives recertification credits.
