We’ve witnessed the Maine HR community in action these past few months, and you’ve done extraordinary things, calling on your superpowers to make a difference in the lives of your employees and the continuity of your organizations. We intend to reward those efforts with an extraordinary Maine HR Convention in May; so please watch for the opening of registration next week.

I’ve called on the superpowers of my Strategic HR team, a faculty scattered around the U.S., and a virtual platform in London, England called HopIn to provide you with something unique. An online experience that leaves you informed and inspired across three learning tracks, a Maine Great Leader series, six keynotes, and a journey around America to meet HR miracle workers in action.

In just a few days, you’ll see what we’ve been cooking up behind the scenes. For now, here’s the start to an Emily Dickinson poem:

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all
