Speaker Selection Guidelines
AHRMA does not offer a fee for Conference or Meeting Speakers. The size of, and decision-making authority of the audience and membership, provide an outstanding opportunity for speakers to increase their visibility and establish valuable contacts within the Central Texas HR community.
AHRMA may consider some reimbursement for travel expenses for Speakers presenting content for more than 4 hours.
Presentations are reviewed by the Co-Vice Presidents of Conference and Programs committees and are evaluated based on proposed topic, relevance, and overall quality of content and relatedness to the HR profession, originality, and educational value, as well as Presenter’s professional speaking skills and references. It is AHRMA’s intent to submit all presentations to the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) to achieve strategic or general credit for the benefit of attendees. AHRMA will work with all Speakers to obtain the necessary information to submit presentations for credit.
Recertification Credit Requirements
