HR Florida is pleased to announce its sixth annual DAY ON THE HILL event in Tallahassee on February 17th and 18th, 2016!
This event will begin at 1:00 pm on February 17th with a series of informative presentations. Following the presentations, there will be an attendee reception from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Hotel Duval. That evening, attendees will be free to dine and network with fellow HR Florida members at local restaurants of their choice. The event will continue all day on Thursday, February 18th, with breakfast at the Hotel Duval, followed by our visit to the Capitol. There, we will meet with legislators and/or their staff where we'll advocate on public policy issues of importance to the HR profession. During the presentations on February 17th, SHRM and HR Florida will prepare attendees for their meetings on the Hill and will provide assistance in setting up those meetings. After the visit to the Capitol, attendees will then reconvene for a debriefing at Hotel Duval to discuss the legislators' reaction to information provided by HR Florida, and how we may further advance our objectives.
There is no registration fee for the Day on the Hill, including the reception and breakfast, and certification credit is expected for the event.
Attendees will be responsible for their travel, lodging, and other expenses. HR Florida chapters are respectfully requested to consider reimbursing those costs for selected participants.
Who Should Attend
We would like every HR Florida chapter to send at least two representatives to this event. Presidents (or President-Elects) and Legislative Directors would be excellent representatives.
We need your help introducing our legislators to HR Florida, educating them on how we can be a valuable resource on legislation affecting the workplace, and shaping that legislation of concern to our profession.
