The Conference Committee


Our purpose is to provide our local HR & Business community with a meaningful networking and professional development experience. We do this by striving to accomplish the following goals:

  • Provide up to date, relevant, and timely information that empowers HR professionals to grow and lead within their respective organizations.
  • Continually enhance the experience based on attendee, partner, and speaker feedback.
  • Remain the cornerstone of AHRMA membership. 

It takes a village to make the conference happen! For AHRMA Members that choose to serve, it will likely be your best learning experience ever. Major components of the conference are listed below. Typically, each component is lead by one Chair with several others who assist them prior to and during the conference. Some members opt to do what they do best, others prefer to do something outside of their comfort zone. Either way, if there is an area of interest to you, we will make room in whatever capacity you choose!

 • Facilities • Silent Auction
 • Networking Administrative
 • Sponsors • Exhibitors
 • Volunteers Communications
 • Educators  

We meet on the second Thursday of each month. Here’s a link to the AHRMA Calendar where you can register to attend our first meeting. Date, time, location are included. If you have any questions or would like to speak to us about conference committee opportunities, please email vpconference@austinhumanresource.org.

Calling All Educators!

Speaker selections will be made by March 1, 2020 or sooner dependent on interest and conference needs.
Proposals will continue to be accepted indefinitely for back-up and future programming.

Please note: We do not accept submissions for keynote speakers. Rather, the committee and the Board work within various networks year-round to identify potential keynotes based on member feedback as well as trending topics and themes in Human Resources. Considerations such as web presence, social media engagement, marketability, references, and depth of organizational leadership expertise are driving factors.
