Thank you for your interest in participating as a presenter for the 2019 MNSHRM State Conference! Our keynote speakers have already been chosen and are accepting proposals for breakout speakers until March 15, 2019. Our theme for the 2019 conference is: SuperHeRo!

The MNSHRM State Council sponsors a two and a half day conference in October drawing 500-700 human resource professionals from the entire state of Minnesota and surrounding states. 

When developing a conference curriculum, our goal is to provide a balanced program that meets the variety of skill levels and interest levels of the conference audience, presented by speakers of the highest quality who represent the diversity of the SHRM and HRCI memberships. 

Many are nationally known, with the goal of allowing our attendees to hear and experience education, informative, innovative and motivational speakers on a variety of HR-related topics.
