Want to hear from your fellow HR professionals, volunteers, speakers and exhibitors as to why they attended the 21st Annual SHRM-Atlanta HR Conference in October 2011?
Gerard Zack, SPHR | Human Resources Executive
There are so many reasons to attend the SHRM-Atlanta Annual Conference. Great keynote speakers, informative educational sessions and a super exhibit hall. I especially like the networking opportunities where I can synch up with HR professionals I have known for a number of years and meet new peers in our profession.

Attendance at the SHRM-Atlanta conference allows me an opportunity to sharpen my skills on human resource subject areas I am currently using in my work, broaden my perspective, and gain valuable insight into important legislative matters affecting both large and small companies. I have also acquired knowledge of alternative opportunities in managing benefits, administrative and legal issues, and performance management through my discussions with a variety of exhibitors and conference speakers. It is an annual event a human resource professional should not miss!
I really appreciate the opportunity to volunteer for SHRM-Atlanta in the capacity of Total Rewards Track Chair, SHRM-Atlanta Ambassador, and one of the SHRM-Atlanta Twitter Coordinators. I greatly enjoyed my interaction with the members, speakers, and sponsors of the conference. My participation afforded me such opportunities as attending workshops, seminars, and speaker sessions on cutting edge HR topics, networking breakfast, awesome vendor selections, increased social media presence, personal interface with our speakers/sponsors, and lastly some of best learning experiences ever. Definitely excited to be participating again in the March conference and in the SHRM National Conference 2012.

Attending the SHRM-Atlanta annual conference provides an opportunity for me to learn relevant information for continued professional development that I am able to share with my team. It has also been an effective way for me to develop resources that I've been able to utilize throughout the year.

SHRM-Atlanta is a great resource full of valuable information across the spectrum of legal issues HR professionals face everyday. The attendees are sophisticated and the relationships I have built during my involvement with SHRM-Atlanta have been invaluable to my professional growth.

I found value in attending the 2011 SHRM-Atlanta conference as it was an opportunity to network and build relationships with key professionals, as well as listen to exciting speakers and presenters, most notably Ms. Kat Cole’s keynote speech & Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo’s session on “A Happy You!
I attend the annual conferences to ensure I stay on track with my professional development. It is pretty much a guarantee that one comes away with new data that is immediately applicable and/or a new or enhanced professional relationship. Both are critical in staying relevant in today's fast changing workplace.

I attended the SHRM-Atlanta Conference to network with and learn from industry leaders those best practices, current laws and industry fundamentals that could enhance the operation of my company. The Conference was truly a worthwhile investment! It provided excellent resources for better compliance and an introduction to new suppliers and approaches for more efficiently conducting business.

The SHRM-Atlanta Annual Conferences always provide me with invaluable “take aways” to bring back to my organization. These are relationships I build with fellow Human Resources professionals, as well as tips, facts, and new ideas to use from the training sessions. I am never disappointed by the information that I gain from attending these conferences.
