Crest Hollow Country Club
Woodbury, Long Island, NY

As the Society for Human Resource Management-Long Island Chapter (SHRM-LI) enters our 21st year of providing HR Professionals and their industry supporters an opportunity to come together for a day at our Exhibitors’ Showcase and Workshops, our focus this year will be on ADVOCACY….providing a variety of tools that HR Professionals can utilize for their FUTURE success.

We all need to become our own ADVOCATE, whether that is as a “Mentor”, as explained by Ann Tardy in our Keynote Breakfast Workshop; or by “Branding” ourselves to management, as taught by Maria Guida during her Breakout Workshop.

Each of us can ADVOCATE to our elected officials so that they better understand the profession…and who better to show us how to effectively make our HR voice heard then SHRM’s Senior Associate for Member Advocacy, David M. Lusk.

Rounding out our Breakout Workshops will be Yael Zofi, showing us that there is a new face to the workforce…“Virtual Teams”…now and in the FUTURE.

Our Conference will close with a special Legal Workshop presented by Jackson Lewis LLP’s Washington, D.C. based Corporate Diversity Counseling Group Chair, Weldon H. Latham, Esq.

18th Annual Conference & Exhibitors’ Showcase

Friday, April 24, 2009
Crest Hollow Country Club
Woodbury, Long Island, NY

 

This year’s Conference theme, HR 2009: Navigating Change, is a reflection of all the too evident fact that in these troubled times change is impacting everyone professionally, personally and globally. Human resource professionals can address these changes in a positive and enlightening way, for both their organization and its employees. Through the presentations in the Conference workshops, human resource professionals will learn why some employees embrace change and others resist it, how to implement change, how to champion change, how to adapt to change, how to work with change, and how to successfully guide employees through a stormy sea to a strong, safe harbor.
