This course is designed to give students exposure by attending the Regional SHRM affiliate NHRMA Annual Conference and Tradeshow in person. Students must attend pre-conference webinars, pre-conference workshops, and attend the general conference for full credit. This course offers learning at the Human Resource Professional level and support for learnings from the instructor. Students will experience firsthand regional networking and meeting with regional professional Human Resource vendors. Students will customize their learning plan to meet individual needs, with various concurrent sessions, general sessions, the tradeshow, and other experiences. This course can be repeated for credit.

The conference registration and fees, travel, and lodging expenses are in addition to registering for the class. It is the student’s responsibility to register through NHRMA directly for the conference and fees. All reservations and logistics are the student’s responsibility (i.e., travel, food, lodging). Pre-Conference Workshops are an additional cost to general registration and are only needed if a student takes five credits. Depending on the timing of the conference, you must attend the conference before completing the class. Total attendance is required for the credits.
