Announcing the CAHR19 Writers Coalition

The California HR Conference provides the HR community with innovative learning experiences and networking opportunities that maximize your HR knowledge and advance your career. But beneath all that is a thriving community of friends, peers, co-workers, and industry leaders that make this event truly special. There’s no better way to stay connected and in-the-know on all things CAHR19 than to follow and interact with everyone about your conference experiences on social media.

We encourage selfies at CAHR19, in fact, tag us!

Here’s where the CAHR19 Writers Coalition comes in. We invited a team of HR industry leaders to share and digest the CAHR19 experience through the lens of their expertise.  They’ll be tweeting, hash-tagging, liking, replying, and posting their way through the Keynotes, nine educational tracks, Tuesday Night Music Show, multiple social gatherings and, of course, PUPPIES. If you can’t attend the California HR Conference this year, following and interacting with our Writers Coalition is the perfect way to stay caught up on everything you missed. At the end of the conference, keep an eye out for summaries they’ll post on their various channels.

Please help us welcome the CAHR19 Writers Coalition by following them now and reaching out to say hi! (Don’t forget to use the #CAHR19 hashtag!)

If you want to join in on the most fun and rewarding HR professional development event on the West Coast, register today before seats sell out!
