Chapter’s Spring Conference  

The Southern New England Chapter’s board of directors is thrilled to announce that we will once again be hosting a mini-conference this spring, scheduled for April 30-May 1 at the Publick House in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. We hope you will consider sharing your expertise as a presenter!

This day-and-a-half conference will feature keynote speakers, concurrent sessions and fantastic networking opportunities. We are seeking colleagues who are interested in delivering a keynote address and/or facilitating a session related to our work as higher ed HR professionals — from best practices to subject matter workshops and beyond, including but not limited to:

  • Diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Legislative/compliance updates
  • Navigating change within higher education
  • Campus wellness and communication initiatives
  • People-skills sessions such as time management for HR professionals, having difficult conversations and delivering effective feedback

The sky is the limit, and we welcome any and all session proposals related to these topics and others. Individuals selected to facilitate a workshop at the event will receive free registration for the conference!

The deadline to submit a proposal is December 13.

All selected facilitators will be notified by early to mid-January 2020.
