Hi SHRM Volunteer Leaders, HAVE YOU REGISTERED? This year's Volunteer Leaders' Business Meeting (VLBM) – formerly the Volunteer Leaders' Summit – is SHRM's invite-only business meeting that serves as an opportunity for SHRM to share our 2020 Business Strategy and objectives with you, our key Volunteer Leaders, and for us to explore ways to engage and partner together to achieve them. The name of the conference isn't the only thing that's changed as we are restructuring the programming and the Volunteer Leader experience to provide a deeper-dive into our 2020 business strategy, enhance the educational programming to equip you and your Chapter and State Council to be successful in the coming year and expand opportunities to network with other Volunteer Leaders.
REMINDER: Your attendance and engaged participation in this VLBM are critical to our shared goal in Creating Better Workplaces for a Better World in 2020 and beyond. Check your email inboxes for your exclusive invitation and registration details.
As a Volunteer Leader with SHRM, you are exclusively invited to join our full three-day program – starting with an Advocacy Day (with meetings with congressional offices on Capitol Hill) and the Opening Session on Thursday, November 14, and concluding on Saturday, November 16 with a dynamic Closing Session featuring a special address from SHRM President & CEO, Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP! Stay tuned for a fully built-out schedule and event website; in the meantime, the Opening General Session will kick off at 3:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 14. For anyone who wishes to participate in our Advocacy Day and meetings on Capitol Hill the morning of the 14th, the programming for Advocacy Day will be from 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Breakfasts/programming for the conference will begin at 8:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday mornings.
