    Fall Conference Description

    CHRA’s Annual Fall Conference focuses solely on legislation and employment law updates that are an integral part of day to day operations for HR Practitioners in Maryland. This year we added an additional recertification credit yet kept the same price as last year! There will also be exhibitors featuring the latest products and services of interest to HR professionals and door prizes. 



    Due to the frequency of last minute legislative changes, program materials will not be printed; however they will be made available electronically via email to all attendees just prior to the conference. Attendees should prepare to take notes and bring iPads (fully charged), or traditional note pads. We appreciate your understanding as we strive to provide you with the most up-to-date information.
