2018 Conference

RU SHRM Conference to be Held- Delayed start of 9:30 AM


Please be advised and after several questions regarding interest in having the conference, we will have a delayed start of 9:30 AM for the event. This will hopefully give enough time  for you to arrive safely and  enjoy the conference. Most speakers should be presenting although a few are a distance away and will not be able to make it in.  


We appreciate your understanding and thank you as always  for your support.


If you are a paid participant and can not attend due to the weather events in your area, please email Ellen Weber at eweber@smlr.rutgers.edu with your full name and mailing address and we will forward a check refund to you.
