At KSSHRM, we are determined to bring happiness to our HR world through this year’s annual conference. Moving on from the COVID-19 pandemic, we can all use a little more humor, smiles, and laughs. We will have the full offering of HR topics you expect to find and more. This year’s theme intends to provide a new outlook and perspective as we all seek to move our profession forward together. Your support and flexibility as we shifted to various online and hybrid formats over the last two years have been amazing. Thank you all for everything you do! We are looking forward to utilizing past examples to offer an even better experience in the years to come. We will continue to offer online options for those that need it and we are excited to see even more people in person this year.
For our 33rd Annual Conference, we will be meeting in a new and exciting place. Please join us this fall in Manhattan, often referred to as ‘Manhappiness’ by those who have experienced the atmosphere and culture in this community. We thought it was fitting to match the moniker to the conference theme and we are thrilled to provide an opportunity for more people to experience a little Manhappiness for themselves. The event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn & Manhattan Conference Center from September 14-16, 2022.
Our in-person offering will certainly enjoy experiences similar to what you've had at other KS SHRM conferences, but we have a few exciting adjustments in store as we lean into our happiness theme.
We can’t wait to see your smiling faces as you find out why we call it Manhappiness this September!
