The second annual Richmond SHRM Strategic Leadership Conference will take place at the Greater Richmond Convention Center on Oct. 4, 2011, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Human resources professionals from around the region are invited to attend to further their education in the field and earn HRCI Strategic Business Credits.

The conference will feature programs on leadership and strategy, as well as provide networking opportunities and a vendor exhibition hall. Conference programs have been approved for seven strategic business credits towards re-certification of a PHR, SHPR or GPHR certification. The cost is $200 for Richmond SHRM members, or $300 for non-members.
“Continuing education in HR is always a priority of Richmond SHRM,” said Nancy Brooking, President of Richmond SHRM. “Since there is not a state conference this year, this is an opportunity for HR practitioners throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia to gain the credits necessary for re-certification.”
