The Maine HR Convention celebrates beyond its 25th anniversary in 2020, and it has become the talk of the HR nation. The Convention consistently offers the best keynoters from around the country, creates imaginative, participatory workshops, awards a boatload of re-certification credits, and generates an atmosphere where HR careers and Maine workplaces thrive. This doesn’t happen by accident. Rather, it’s the result of a great collaboration between your host Strategic HR U.S. and Maine’s SHRM State Council and the eight affiliated chapters. Add the energy of 950+ participants and a showcase of sponsors and vendors, and you have a very good reason to join us at the 2020 Maine HR Convention.
The following information is from the completed 2019 event. Please check back in the fall for details on next year.
Here are the 2019 attendee pass rates. There is a discounted rate for SHRM members and Maine SHRM chapter members.
