So theses past two days I have been volunteering at my HR associations Annual Conference. Let me tell you, these are my people! Where else can you go and get free books on appreciation and t-shirts that say “Don’t make me use my HR voice”. I spent both days listening to the best of the best speak about topics such as productivity, leadership and laughter.
The Conference is great but the people are also great! The place is full of like minded intelligent people all working in the field of HR. It’s a fantastic opportunity to network and learn about other people’s role in the field of HR.
I volunteer every year at the conference and it’s one of the best ways to attend! First of all it’s free! What a great way to sell a two paid absence to your supervisor! Also I get to see some sessions and all of the key note speakers. There’s free lunch and a ton of swag from the trade show available.
I love volunteering and can’t wait for next year! Did I mention that I even got a cookie with my own face printed on it? Awesome!
