    • Professional Development

    A conference is a great place to learn. Kind of obvious right? If you think you know it all, then you should definitely attend, because you don’t.

    • HRCI & SHRM Credits

    Need recertification credits? Get 14 HR pre-approved HRCI & SHRM credits in just two days. If you have an SPHR we also have 10.5 Business credits!!

    • Networking

    Meet people! This is networking in its truest form! HR professionals from many industries, over 180 employers and 20+ communities in Alaska! You communicate with people daily via social media. You see some of your colleagues every once in a while at your monthly chapter programs. But this is THE conference where you can actually meet these people in real life, put a face to the name, and build relationships.

    • Exhibit Hall

    Talk with vendors! We all are using vendors to help run our business, so this is a great time to see what’s new, talk, and connect with new vendors.

    • Inspire

    Be inspired and challenged to think differently, to expand your knowledge base and soak in the positive energy from others that love the profession as much as you do!

    • Lead

    Get back to work ready to apply what you have learned, motivated, inspired and ready to lead!


       Regardless of when your budget cycle is, remember to allocate a budget line for your attendance to the annual Alaska State HR Conference.

    • How to Convince Your Supervisor

    We know YOU are convinced, but you still have to convince your supervisor. Some tips:

    Sample Justification Letter for your Manager (Word Document)

    • Reduced to No Travel Costs

    Depending on where you are in Alaska, the travel costs are negligent when compared to attending a conference out of state. And if you are in or around Anchorage, there are no travel costs! If you are coming from outside Anchorage, offer to share a room with a  colleague to reduce expenses

    • Register Early

    The earlier you register, the more opportunities to save your company money.

    • Benefit to the Organization

    Focus on the specific information that you will be able to bring back to your organization.

    • Share What You Learned

    Offer to prepare and deliver a presentation for your colleagues to share what you learned and the resources you have discovered. Therefore, others will get the benefits of your attendance as well.

    • Recertification

    If you need Recertification Credits, remind your supervisor the Alaska SHRM State Council Conference is a great way to earn HRCI and SHRM credits. 

    • Coverage While Away

    Explain what your plans are regarding how your projects/tasks will be taken care of while you are away.
