SHRM-Atlanta's Link with a LeaderTM Auction

Thursday, May 21, 2009 / 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Atlanta History Center

The Premier HR Marketing Event of the Year!
SHRM-Atlanta is excited to announce the 2009 Link with a LeaderTM Auction on May 21st at the Atlanta History Center.  What is the Link with a LeaderTM Auction?  Link with a LeaderTM is the premier event where Senior Executives of major Atlanta businesses are auctioned off to the highest bidder who are then given the valuable opportunity to take that executive, and potentially more than one executive from that company, out to lunch and have some one-on-one time with them.  This up-scale evening event will also have great food, an open bar, and hundreds of other SHRM-Atlanta members to meet.

In addition to raising funds for SHRM-Atlanta's educational programs, a portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

We are excited to be hosting the event at the Atlanta History Center for the second year.  The menu for the evening features a cuisine from three different regions and will be catered by Affairs to Remember. 

SHRM-Atlanta would like to announce our line-up of live auctionees this year.  Not only will you have the chance to bid on the following Senior level HR Executive, but you will also have the opportunity to meet and mingle with them at the event.
