The great folks at Northern New England Law Publishers/Maine have pulled together another sold out event. WOW.

This is much more than a business convention where we get another name badge holder, tote bag and an opportunity to grip’n’grin with sponsors, vendors and each other.  This is a refreshing retreat for the mind, spirit & soul. The weather forecast looks tremendous – skip a session to take a walk on the Rockland Harbor Breakwater.

There are several social media provides several channels for shared engagement.

  • YouTube – video segments from the keynoters, sponsors and HR Leaders
  • Instagram – sharing of  a thousand silent words through photography
    • Find me as RMSmithJr

Please use the event hashtag #MEHRC2013 for all Twitter & Instagram postings. This allows for those who could not attend the opportunity to attend vicariously through our shared experiences, thoughts, and pictures.

But wait there is more.  Look up from your device and turn to the person sitting beside you to have live conversations as well.  Where are they from? Why are they here? What’s new in their world? What is their biggest HR challenge? What have they been doing for fun?

IF that isn’t enough, there are also a bunch of S/PHR recertification credits available.

1-HRCIHRCI has pre-approved the conference for re-certification credit for PHR’s and SPHR’s.

Earn up to 22.25 hours of general credit and 16.0 hours of strategic business credit.

The SHRM Foundation silent auction has hit a new milestone this year.  Over $13k worth of items have been donated.  My donation is a dazzling 10″ x 20″ photograph, printed on aluminum.

Let’s get ready to be the difference.
