  • Write down your top 3 goals in attending the event.

Step 2: Select Your Sessions

  • Check out the Maine HR Convention Schedule and use our course tracks to help select which of the 50+ sessions are right for you.

Step 3: Emphasize Your Education

  • HR is evolving rapidly – with complicated policies and ever-changing legislation, it is vital to stay on top of the current workplace landscape.
  • The Convention offers a bounty of recertification credits for both SHRM and HRCI, all in one place! We are pre-approved for 23.75 PDC’s towards SHRM CP & SCP recertification, and pre-approved by HRCI for 23.75 GENERAL credits towards PHR and SPHR, and 15.75 BUSINESS credits towards SPHR recertification.

Step 4: Find Your Fixes

Step 5: Write the Request
