 SHRM-Atlanta's 2024 annual conference will be held at AmericasMart, Atlanta's premier showroom and conference center.  

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. 

Presenters will be selected to present in-person at the conference and/or provide a recorded presentation for our virtual library.

SHRM-Atlanta has a tradition of offering professional development programs that encourage innovation in the field of human resources.

We look for contributors who are willing to share their expertise without expectation of payment in the spirit of learning and networking, a purpose for which we were founded.

Speakers must agree to the following expectations:

  • SHRM-Atlanta follows the industry standard of capturing educational content via video and/or audio. Your session may be recorded and made available to attendees via an on-demand library post-event.
  • SHRM-Atlanta will be the sole copyright owner of the recording and a copy of the recording will be maintained by SHRM-Atlanta, for the sole use of SHRM-Atlanta, on a password protected platform after SOAHR.
  • Speakers are prohibited from using the podium as a place for direct promotion of their product, service, or monetary self-interest. Soliciting attendee contact information by any means (including raffles or giveaways) is NOT allowed. Contact initiated by the attendee is acceptable.
  • Any material that the speaker (or organization) intends to use/distribute before, as part of, or after the presentation must be approved in advance by SHRM-Atlanta and must be in support of the educational content of the speaking engagement and devoid of marketing content.
  • Unless the speaker has entered into a formal sponsorship arrangement with SHRM-Atlanta, Speaker may not represent themselves or their organization as a “host,” “sponsor,” or representation other than as speaker for the specific SHRM-Atlanta program.
  • SHRM-Atlanta does not share attendee names and/or contact information with speakers.
  • Speakers must refrain from making overt statements or pointed humor that disparages the rightful dignity and social equity of any individual group.
  • Speaker will not record, livestream, or otherwise electronically capture and/or share their program unless approved in writing by SHRM-Atlanta.
