IS THE 2020 CONFERENCE STILL HAPPENING?

YES! We’re also expanding our conference to be both in-person and virtual! Plan to join us August 24 to 26, 2020 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Indianapolis  — OR from the comfort of your own home or office. Any way you choose to attend, you will have equal access to inspiration, insights and big ideas from our most impressive speaker lineup to date.

NEW this year: All attendees will receive free conference-on-demand viewing for one year, enabling access to all our SHRM-Certified sessions at your leisure.

SAFETY CONCERNS DUE TO COVID-19

Our Conference Planning Committee is constantly evaluating and adjusting conference logistics to be in line with COVID-19 safety guidelines. As we get closer to the conference we’ll release more information. For now, please know that we’re taking all precautions we can!

REGISTRATION

If you arrive on Sunday we have early registration! Registration hours on Sunday, August 24, are 2:00 to 6:00 pm. You will find Registration on the Third Floor of the JW Marriott hotel. Watch for signs. Monday and Tuesday registration hours are 6:00 am to 5:00 pm.

CONFERENCE APP

We are pumped to be powered with the Whova conference app again this year. Get started with the video tutorial, sign in with the email you used to register, and search for “HR Indiana Annual Conference” in the app.

CONFERENCE ON DEMAND

NEW this year: All attendees will receive free conference-on-demand viewing for one year, enabling access to all our SHRM-Certified sessions at your leisure.

Take the Conference home with you! It is impossible to be at all 7 of our learning tracks at the same time. That’s why due to popular demand we are recording all concurrent learning sessions and the whole package is available for no additional charge!

FINDING HELP DURING THE CONFERENCE

When you are onsite during the conference, look for committee members in the shirts with the HR Indiana Logo. We will have volunteers stationed in many locations to help guide you to the various locations. They will be happy to answer your questions. 

SOCIAL MEDIA

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter during the conference. On Twitter, add @hrindianashrm. The hashtag for the conference is #HRIndiana. Like us on Facebook (@HR IndianaSHRM). We will have a live Twitter feed on the Third Floor Prefunction area outside Grand 5 and 6.

SPEAKER SURVEY INCENTIVES

Your feedback on our conference speakers is critical to the success of our event each year, and we are making it easy for you to speak your mind! Within the Whova conference app, you may rate each speaker on a 5-star rating scale at the end of each session. Better yet, each time you rate a speaker, your name is entered into a daily drawing for prizes!

SPEAKER HANDOUTS

We will be uploading several speaker handouts on our Whova app. Please make sure to download the app prior to the conference. Keep checking for additions. Remember, we are offering free WiFi at the conference again this year, so you can download them on your smartphone or tablet.

DRESS IN LAYERS

You never know what the weather will be like in Indianapolis! But seriously, even though it is August outside, it can sometimes be a little chilly during conference sessions. Dress in layers so you’ll always be prepared! And, if you’re looking for some new layers, check out all the stylish swag the bookstore has to offer.

SHRM – NATIONAL AND LOCAL CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP

Membership in SHRM continues to grow globally as HR professionals experience the benefits of being a part of the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. But the fact is that there are resources and services available through your local SHRM chapter that SHRM can’t provide.

Visit the HR Indiana SHRM Membership booth, located on the third floor of the JW Marriott, next to the SHRM Bookstore during the HR Indiana Conference and learn more about being a member of your local chapter, and win great prizes!
