Day on the Hill
Damian Taylor, Esq. - State Legislative Affairs Director
We are pleased to announce our second annual DAY ON THE HILL event in Tallahassee from February 15-16, 2012! This event will begin with a wine and cheese reception the evening of Wednesday, February 15, at the Hotel Duval. Following the reception, attendees with 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 16, with breakfast at the Hotel Duval and a series of informative presentations, followed by lunch in the Capitol cafeteria. After that, we’ll meet with legislators and/or their staff where we’ll advocate on public policy issues of importance to the HR profession. SHRM and HR Florida will prepare attendees for their afternoon meetings on the Hill and will provide assistance in setting up those meetings. Attendees may reconvene following their legislative meetings 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.
HR Florida has reserved a block of hotel rooms at the Hotel Duval for the nights of February 15 and 16. For room reservations, please contact the hotel at 1-888-717-8854. Tell the hotel you are with the HR Florida State Council Legislative Meeting for the special rate of $159/night.
We would like every HR Florida chapter to send at least two representatives to this event. Presidents (or Presidents-Elect) and Legislative Directors would be excellent representatives. We need your help introducing our legislators to HR Florida, educating them how we can be a valuable resource on legislation affecting the workplace, and shaping that legislation of concern to our profession.
In addition to reserving your room, please register on the HR Florida Events Calendar. We will accept event registrations up to February 8. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact HR Florida’s Legislative Affairs Directors, Damian Taylor at Damian@chtlegal.com or Iggy Garcia at Iggy.Garcia@ogletreedeakins.com. Looking forward to seeing you there!!
