HR Florida is pleased to announce its 7th annual HR Florida Legislative Conference (formerly Day on the Hill) in Tallahassee on March 29th and 30th, 2017!
This event will begin at 1:00 pm on March 29th 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 Double Tree by Hilton Hotel. 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, March 30th, with breakfast at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, 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 March 29th, 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 the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel 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 Legislative Conference, 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.
