Spring 2020 Conference

In response to the rapidly changing circumstances associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Oregon CUPA HR Board made the decision to cancel the Spring Conference planned at Mt. Hood Resort and instead offer some of the planned content as a virtual meeting.  

Please know, this was a difficult decision and one we did not take lightly. Our goal — as always — is to offer outstanding professional development and networking experiences for our members, but with recent Universities announcing travel bans we also need to consider the feasibility of an in-person event and the health and well-being of our members.

Save the date for a 2-day Fall conference at Mt. Hood November 5-6, registration and more information coming this summer.

Virtual Conference Details

  • Slides available now – see link next to each speaker below! (HRCI and SHRM 3.0 credits approved – confirmation sent to participants soon after the event airs.)
  • Friday April 3rd: Event Program
