HR Florida Legislative Conference (Formerly Day On the Hill)

 

On January 24th and 25th, 2018, 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 24th, with a full briefing on pending legislation by representatives from SHRM and labor and employment professionals from throughout the state. We’ll enjoy visiting that evening with a cocktail reception at our host hotel, the Hotel Duval. On the 25th, 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. Click here for event details. Please register early and plan on joining us in Tallahassee!

Advocacy

SHRM members can make a difference. SHRM provides a number of resources to assist in advocacy efforts including:

  • Day Inside the Beltway. The Day Inside the Beltway (DITB) program provides SHRM members the unique opportunity to travel to our Nation’s capital for a day of legislative and regulatory meetings and briefings. Activities include meeting with the staff at SHRM's headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, where staff briefs the members on the issues they will be discussing during their visits to Capitol Hill, as well as how to conduct an advocacy meeting with a legislator or their staff.   SHRM's Member Advocacy Specialist will pre-arrange your meetings on Capitol Hill, as well as accompany you on your visits. Meetings are scheduled for you to visit the offices of your two senators, as well as your member of the House of Representatives.

  • Day Inside the District. The Day Inside the District (DITD) program is a local initiative that provides an opportunity to generate interest and support of issues important to the HR professional on a federal and state level.  SHRM's DITD program affords members the opportunity to organize a variety of in-district meetings with legislators - whether it be at a Town Hall Meeting with the legislator in a nearby venue in their home district, a face-to-face meeting in their district office, or a Capital Day when a state legislator is performing their duties while the state legislature is in session.
