CANCELLED 2020 HR & Business Conference

In order to protect the health and safety of our campus community and visitors, the conference planning committee and University leadership made the decision to cancel the 2020 HR & Business Conference that was to be held on April 9, 2020.  

Please know this was a difficult decision and we apologize for the inconvenience but felt it was important to make a decision as soon as possible. If you had already registered for the conference, your registration was cancelled.

We hope to be able to identify the date of the 2021 conference soon and will do our best to secure the same speakers for the conference next year. 

We have, however, continued with the nomination and selection process for the HR Leadership awards.

Please do not hesitate to contact the planning committee if you have questions.
