2018 Conference

It’s not too late!  Your President this year, Jeanine Wilson, issued a challenge to all Mobile SHRM Members and Friends…  A challenge for all to support your chapter and sell a vendor booth or two.  Many of us have that one vendor that we just can’t purchase their services so let’s get them in front of other HR leaders that might. 

Often, we have a new or existing business owner that we come in contact with who would benefit from putting an example of their product or their name in front of 100+ HR people with tons of purchase power!  Let’s offer them the opportunity to become a vendor partner, sponsor or silent auction donor.   Think of how easily we could sell out of booths or sponsorships! 

So, please, accept this challenge and make a difference towards furthering our profession.
