Convince Your Boss

We know how hard it can be for you to get away from your desk and to showcase the value of professional development to your company.  So let us help you convince your manager or boss.

Get heard and get approval with our Official Manager Letter

​Our official manager letter has all the advice and resources you will need to influence your boss’s decision making.  After they discover what our programming is all about, they just might want to attend too!

Here are the top 4 reasons to attend:

  1. Rub elbows with HR and Business Professionals.
    Get out of the office and network with local HR and business professionals at any of our professional development or networking events.  This is your chance to step-up your game, join discussions, discover like-minded professionals and create personal connections with industry peers.
  2. Top-notch speakers who are on the cutting-edge of the issues that affect you and your business needs. Our professional development events and webinars feature some of the best speakers in the region. These are well-known experts on important issues that affect you and your business needs on a daily basis. Learn from the best and get key takeaways that you can apply the next day.
  3. Need credits? We have them!
    An important component to our programming is the HRCI and SHRM continuing education credits. Attend our professional development events or webinars to earn both business and general credits, with the number varying by program. Take advantage of this great value!
  4. Take your development to the next level.
    Join us for our chapter events to hear from business leaders, HR practitioners, consultants and academia who will equip you with tools, strategies, and actionable insights that you’ll be able to implement immediately. Spend a few hours or attend multiple events to connect with experts as we explore new ways to challenge ourselves and our teams.
