CAHR19 Deadlines & Discounts – Two Weeks Left of Preview Pricing

The 2019 California HR Conference is shaping up to be an incredible experience, celebration, and exchange of HR expertise; from our featured speakers, rousing entertainment and delicious food, to the dozens of surprises hidden up our sleeve, August 25-28, 2019 is going to be jam-packed with the best practices and strategies to become liberators of human potential at your organization. With the year underway, CAHR19 deadlines and discounts are also rolling along. Did you know our Preview pricing for attendees ends in just two weeks? Mark February 28 on your calendar to gain the best value for your conference dollar, and our absolute lowest rates of 2019.

Even including travel, we come out at half the cost of national conferences, and your professional development budget will cover more California-specific content and local relationships than ever at CAHR19. Meet the companies and leaders driving HR innovation in the Golden State – as well as the expert attorneys navigating California and Federal employment laws. Take home priceless connections and relationships within the industry to support your long-term career goals. We think it’s a fantastic value proposition – and we’ve got amazing discounts available to back it up.

Preview pricing ends Feb 28

My favorite way to register for a conference is knowing I’m saving my company $150 by submitting my registration early. If you already know you want to earn 16.75+ recertification credits, attend more California-specific sessions than ever before, make valuable relationships, and enjoy comedy and music shows with your HR pals, then our CAHR19 Preview Pricing is for you! Simply complete your registration before 11:59pm on Thursday, February 28 and enjoy $150 savings compared to our onsite registration. Here’s our registration page so you can get started.

Early Bird pricing ends May 31

Need more time – or information – to convince your boss? It’s pretty great to be an Early Bird with our early bird pricing ending May 31, 2019. Who doesn’t like to save $100 off onsite registration? An extra $100 can bring you two weeks of nice work lunches, 25 specialty espresso drinks, or an extra-long appointment with an experienced masseuse. More importantly, because our full session line-up is published in the spring, you’ll have plenty of information available about our 70+ sessions and speakers to help with your Justification Letter. If Early Bird sounds like the pricing for you, bookmark into your calendar to register by 11:59pm PST (or earlier – why not live up to the Early Bird name?) on Friday, May 31, 2019.

Standard Rate ends July 31

You have a lot of responsibility riding on you every day at work – and plenty of decisions to make. Deadlines for your professional development might have to take a back-seat sometimes – that’s why we’ve made sure to provide Standard pricing. You might not know if you can take time away from your desk for CAHR19 until this summer, but don’t fear. If you register before 11:59pm on Wednesday, July 31, you’ll still save $50 off onsite registration with our Standard rate!
