    2018 VA SHRM State Conference



    APRIL 22 – 25, 2018
    The Omni Homestead Resort | Hot Springs, VA

    The Virginia SHRM State Council invites you to Color Your World HR, from April 22-25, 2018 at the Omni Homestead Resort where you and your fellow “HR-tisans” will be able to envision how our world is colored with the blues, joyful yellow, not always black or white (sometimes gray), greener pastures…you get the idea. This year’s conference schedule offers a rainbow of strategy, skills, training and insight to achieve your goals.  Your palate will be filled with 45+ Breakout sessions that promote idea sharing, 8 Masters sessions for in-depth discussion, 5 big-idea & motivational Keynote sessions, along with plenty of time for team building and camaraderie.

    Relax, unwind, and enjoy the colors to behold on the scenic drive to The Omni Homestead Resort. As you relish in the purple mountain views, green pastures and indigo roadside streams, you’ll leave the “mean reds” of daily demands behind. The VASHRM Conference has booked the entire Homestead Resort which provides a unique environment for learning, networking & relaxing. The Homestead amenities and activities offer something for everyone.
