Covid-19 Statement Regarding The Conference
The health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors/sponsors and volunteers is our top priority. As such, we will be following the recommendations of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, NM DOH Secretary Kathyleen M. Kunkel, and the CDC, and will be postponing our 2020 Conference. However, you can count on the same excellent experience once it is safe for us to gather together and Power Up our HR Knowledge.
We are already working with Isleta Resort & Casino to secure an alternate date and will send out additional information as soon as we get the details in place. We will notify those who have already registered regarding holding registrations currently in place for the rescheduled conference, refunds for those that require it, and other related items.
We will be reaching out to all scheduled speakers, including those who have submitted proposals for our DisruptHR event with the hope that you will still be available to speak, and to sponsors with the hope you will still be able to be on hand to share your products and services.
We have all put a lot of time and heart into this conference, and we plan to reap those benefits when it is prudent to do so.
Thank you for all that you do. Please be safe and stay healthy.
