|My wife and her new Cadillac.|
Last year my wife and I purchased a new automobile. We looked at a lot of different manufacturers, styles and price ranges before settling on a Cadillac SRX. Quite frankly I never saw myself as a Cadillac owner. However after looking at all of the vehicles that we thought would fit our lifestyle and were within our price range I was truly dumbfounded to find my wife and I purchasing this car. My point is this, one needs to look closely when making a buying decision. Sometime the particulars are not always what you think they are,
Now late last week I was contacted by some of my ILSHRM buds letting me know that the agenda for our State Conference was complete. I had heard some of the topics and presenter names that were on the docket. I knew they would be thought-provoking and the leading edge HR, but when I saw the whole listing in a matrix format I was amazed.
When I look at our conference offering, I liken this to my Cadillac purchase. Given what Illinois SHRM has put forth I feel like we are offering a Cadillac at an affordable price. The programs are cutting edge, out front subject matter presented by some of the most well known folks in our industry. While you might think that a conference with this caliber of talent and subject matter would be unaffordable, or somehow out of your grasp, such is not the case. For the early registration fee $350 you can attend both days August 22 and 23.
Over the next few weeks we will be visiting with our presenters in this space, so you can get to know them better and see if you would be interested to hear what they have to say at this year’s Illinois State Council of SHRM 12th Annual Conference.
