Chicago Bound! #SHRM13 Preview

For the next week, as thousands of HR professionals from around the country and world converge on Chicago for the 2013 SHRM Annual Conference and Expo, Women of HR will be joining them and featuring all things SHRM Annual related…

This weekend I’ll be heading to Chicago, IL for the 2013 SHRM Annual Conference and Expo, running from Sunday, June 16th though Wednesday, June 19th at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago.  I am fortunate and honored to have been invited to be a part of the #SHRM13 Social Media team, and will thus be attending to cover the events of the conference, share information, and generally help build excitement around the event.

Next week, check back here for posts about what’s happening in and around the conference.  I’ll be sharing my thoughts on information and key learnings that particularly resonate with me.  I’ll certainly be highlighting keynotes from Blake Mycoskie , Daniel Pink , and Mark KellyGabby Giffords, but I’ll also be sharing information from various concurrent sessions as well. 

If you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow the hashtag #SHRM13; I, along with my fellow Social Media Team members, and many others will be tweeting to share information and impressions from the sessions and other conference events and happenings as well.  It’s a great way to keep up with what’s happening in real time, even if you can’t be there. 

In addition, SHRM has done a fantastic job in building an online conference community for this year’s conference.  Head on over and check out the site – if you’re attending it’s a great resource for everything confernece related.  Even if you’re not attending, if you are a SHRM member you can still check in and read the discussions and blog posts; I’m certain there will be a wealth of great information shared here over the course of the four days.

 And lastly, if you’re also attending the conference, let me know!  You can connect with me on Twitter @JennyJensHR or on LinkedIn.  

 See you in Chicago!
