Day On the Hill - 2013
On April 17th and 18th, HR Florida will descend on Tallahassee to prepare for and meet with our State Legislators regarding pending legislation of importance to HR professionals. The event will begin on the 17th, with a full briefing on pending legislation by representatives from SHRM and labor and employment lawyers from throughout the state. We’ll enjoy visiting that evening with a cocktail reception at our host hotel, the Hotel Duval. On the 18th, we will meet with our State Representatives and Senators to share our expertise and opinions regarding pending employment-related legislation. After lunch, we will “debrief” and plan for appropriate follow up. Additional information regarding Day on the Hill can be found under the Events tab on this website. Please register early and plan on joining us in Tallahassee!
