The 2022 KYSHRM Conference was the first state conference I was able to attend, and I would say I had a better time there than at the national conferences I have attended in the past. The venues, speakers, vendors, and overall atmosphere led to an amazing couple of days! Not only was I able to connect with other fantastic HR professionals in my area but vendors that helped me with some issues we were dealing with.

The KYSHRM Conference is an amazing event. I always leave feeling re-energized from the keynote speakers and sessions. The sessions offer all the updates I need for changes in the HR field.  It also gives me time to get answers to issues that I am having from subject matter experts. I have made lifelong friends through the networking opportunities with peers. This has given me a network of people I can count on when I have questions or need to talk through an issue.

The KYSHRM Conference is one of the best conferences you can attend across the nation. It’s considered one of SHRM’s top conferences to attend – not only because of the valuable certification credits available, but to network locally with HR peers across Kentucky. The keynotes are always outstanding, providing tips and resources HR professionals can take back to their workplaces.

The sessions and content were directly relevant to the challenges I was actively trying to puzzle out, I was able to connect with local speakers for personal, professional, and organizational growth, and I got to network with HR professionals in my own community. In 2021 and 2022, we were back in person and it was even better. I CANNOT WAIT to be back with my peers and friends at the 2023 KY State SHRM Conference! Content + Connections = Success. Our profession is constantly changing and evolving and these investments are crucial to elevating the strategic role of HR in our organizations to help create better workplace; this knowledge, these skills, aren’t one and done learning opportunities.

I find the KYSHRM conference to be one of the most valuable events I attend each year for my professional growth and development. The conference is always well planned and has learning opportunities for those new to the HR profession as well as for more senior level HR professionals. It’s well worth the investment!
