Do you remember yours? Well, I don’t. That’s because it hasn’t happened yet. I know, I know you’d think a grown man would have experienced it once already but no. I’m still green. I’ve heard about it. I’ve read about it. I’ve heard other people talk about it. I’ve even looked at it online, but I’ve never experienced the pleasure myself.
Listening to the accounts of others, I want all the details; was it good, was it fun, would you do it again? How many times would you do it? Who did you do it with? How did you do it?
I have to admit, I’ve daydreamed about it. I’ve wondered what my first time would be like. Who’d be watching? Will I do it right? What do I need to know?
I get to find out soon…August 5-7th and I’m doing it in Chicago. I’m talking about my 1st HR professional conference of course. What did you think I was talking about? (get your minds out of the gutter)
I am very excited and proud to be on the social media team for Society of Human Resources Management Illinois State Conference.
Thanks to John Jorgerson (@jkjhr) for the invitation.
Over the past 18 months I’ve really come to appreciate and understand the immediate impact and value of being a member of SHRM. It’s extremely important for an HR professional to stay involved with SHRM throughout their career. Even if you’re unemployed, self-employed or aspiring to be in HR. It’s paramount that we take advantage of the information and relationships that SHRM provides.
That being said, I’m looking forward to meeting a number of people in real life, but in addition I want to soak up the information. I am going to slow it down and really enjoy my first time.
