"The annual HR Florida state conference offers HR professionals the biggest bang for the buck to make new friends, build a business network, shop HR outsource and support services, sharpen the HR bailiwick saw with loads of education, get current on employment law, earn amply generous certification points, meet celebrities like Diana Nyad, and tweet – but rarely sleep."

Laurel DeMattia

"I think this is an excellent conference. Over the years I have increasingly become more involved in conference activities outside of the concurrent sessions. Each year I look forward to networking and learning new skills with other HR professionals. Each day is packed with sessions and by the end of the day I am exhausted, however, I think every minute is worth it. The general sessions are always so entertaining, lively, and motivating. At the conclusion of the conference, I am motivated to return to the office and lead my team to greater heights. Looking forward to next year and hopefully I can bring one of my co-workers."

"Hats off to the planning committee. The conference was well organized, excellent presenters and presentations. Having just moved to Florida in the past year, HR Florida and HR Tampa are organizations that consistently provide valuable programs for their members."
