On your mark (your calendars), get set (to learn and have fun), go (register)! 


On behalf of the boards of the Southern Region, Central Region, and North Carolina chapter, we are pleased to invite you to the 3rd Annual Combined IPMA-HR Regional Training Conference in Charlotte, NC. Our “pit crew” is getting pretty good at planning this event, having gained experience last year in New Orleans, and St. Louis in 2012. North Carolina has a strong IPMA-HR chapter, so we’re expecting Charlotte to be even bigger and better.

  Never been to Charlotte? You will find a big, clean city with many attractions, including interesting art and the NASCAR Hall of Fame. April should be the perfect time of year to discover and explore a new part of the country. Hotwire rated Charlotte one of the top 10 value destinations in the United States for its southern charm and cosmopolitan character.

Speaking of value, you will not find a better bang for your buck than this

combined regional IPMA-HR conference. Impressive general sessions and educational breakout sessions (the program already has been pre-approved for 4 HRCI credits and more are pending!), excellent networking opportunities, and fun social events…at an early bird price of $295…that can’t be beat. If you’re interested in gaining your IPMA certification, a Developing HR Competencies course will once again be offered to a limited number of participants.

Stay on the right track…join us in Charlotte!
