DRESS IN LAYERS

You never know what the weather will be like in Indianapolis! But seriously, even though it is August outside, it can sometimes be a little chilly during conference sessions. Dress in layers so you’ll always be prepared! And, if you’re looking for some new layers, check out all the stylish swag the bookstore has to offer.

We are pumped to be powered with the Whova conference app again this year. Get started with the video tutorial, sign in with the email you used to register, and search for “HR Indiana Annual Conference” in the app.

HUNGRY?

Continental breakfast is available every morning at the conference and lunch is served on Monday and Tuesday in the Exhibit Hall. The closing lunch on Wednesday is in the JW Marriott in Grand 5, 6.

The hotel also has two restaurants on the first level and a Starbucks on the second floor.

SPEAKER SURVEY INCENTIVES

Your feedback on our conference speakers is critical to the success of our event each year, and we are making it easy for you to speak your mind! Within the Whova conference app, you may rate each speaker on a 5-star rating scale at the end of each session. Better yet, each time you rate a speaker, your name is entered into a daily drawing for prizes! The first day we’re giving away a free book from the HR Indiana SHRM Bookstore, the second day we’re awarding a $30 credit in the bookstore, and the third day we’re awarding a free registration to the 2020 HR Indiana Conference!!! So please review speakers every chance you get!

SPEAKER HANDOUTS

We will be uploading several speaker handouts on our Whova app. Please make sure to download the app prior to the conference. Keep checking for additions. Remember, we are offering free WiFi at the conference again this year, so you can download them on your smartphone or tablet.

SHRM – NATIONAL AND LOCAL CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP

Membership in SHRM continues to grow globally as HR professionals experience the benefits of being a part of the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. But the fact is that there are resources and services available through your local SHRM chapter that SHRM can’t provide.

Visit the HR Indiana SHRM Membership booth, located on the third floor of the JW Marriott, next to the SHRM Bookstore during the HR Indiana Conference and learn more about being a member of your local chapter, and win great prizes!

HR Indiana has been approved for 14.75 credit hours for SHRM Certification and HRCI.

Be sure to check out our complimentary Chair Massages in the Exhibit Hall. They are open most hours of the Exhibit Hall. Thanks to Corporate Massage for this service!

CHARGING STATIONS

Stop by the Connection Central lounge in the Exhibit Hall to recharge your batteries (your cell phone as well as your internal batteries!).
