Gas South District Convention Center Duluth, Georgia, United States


SOAHR brings together hundreds of metro Atlanta HR leaders for two days of connections and learning, most recently in July 2022 with 600+ participants.

Returning to March for the first time since 2019, SHRM-Atlanta's 2023 annual conference will be held at the Gas South Convention Center, a newly renovated and expanded facility. 

We aim to secure SHRM and HRCI recertification for sessions offered and may opt to record and/or livestream content. Sessions will be juried in November to select the best diversity of content and meet current member needs.

Join the SOAHR 2023 community of educators!
