PA SHRM Call for Speakers: Fall 2014 Conference

    May 6, 2014

    The Pennsylvania State chapter of the Society of Human Resource Managers (PASHRM) is calling for facilitators and presenters for our 2014 Fall Conference, September 24-25 at the Penn Stater in State College Pennsylvania. 

    The basis of this model is that the field of HR is continually evolving in its response to increasing demands of the business community. As a result, HR should add value and contribute in meaningful ways to employees, company, customers, communities, partners and investors. SHRM’s competency model, Elements for HR Success, includes one technical competency and eight behavioral competencies. The technical competency, Human Resource Technical Expertise and Practice, is the most fundamental requirement for HR Professionals.

    • Human Resource Technical Expertise and Practice— the ability to apply the principles and practices of human resource management to contribute to the success of the business.
    • Behavioral Competencies--- listed below, and further defined on page 4, allow human resource professionals to leverage their technical competence to contribute to organizational success.
    • Relationship Management
    • Consultation
    • Organizational Leadership and Navigation
    • Communication
    • Global and Cultural Effectiveness
    • Ethical Practice
    • Critical Evaluation
    • Business Acumen

    It is our intent to systematically feature these roles to participants in order to help them improve their value to their organizations and advance the profession of Human Resources.

    If you are interested in presenting at the Conference, we invite you to complete the attached Call for Presentations Submission. It will be helpful for you to highlight the tangible takeaways that attendees will receive as a result of attending your program.  Our objective is to make our programs as interactive and fun as possible, the emphasis shifting from information sharing to experiential learning.  Proposals that focus on tangible takeaways and have a workshop approach will have a greater probability of selection.  If you are not selected as a presenter, you may be able to address our members by participating as a Sponsor. 

    Please email your completed Submission forms to Ed Krow & Andrew Sholly by Friday, May 15, 2014.
