Calls for Presentation
When developing the conference curriculum, our goal is to provide a balanced program that meets the variety of skill levels and interest levels of the conference audience, presented by speakers of the highest quality who represent the diversity of the SHRM membership.
SHRM has a tradition of using educational conference sessions as a platform for innovation in the field of human resource management. We look for contributors who are willing to share their expertise without expectation of payment in the spirit of networking, a purpose for which the Society was founded.
For the below conferences, you must have a speaker profile on the website prior to submitting a proposal. If you have not previously created a speaker profile, click on the name of the conference (during the recruiting period for that conference) to create one. Your login credentials will be emailed upon completion of your profile.

SHRM strives to offer a balanced program of educational sessions and qualified speakers at our conferences. Proof of performance plays a strong role in the selection of proposals and is required to make the proposal complete.
The ONLY accepted forms of proof of performance are:
DO NOT submit letters of recommendation, phone numbers, marketing brochures, audio recordings, interviews, books or articles. They DO NOT qualify as proof of performance. Because of the large number of proposals we receive and competition for a limited number of speaking slots is fierce, proposals sent without proof of performance are incomplete and will not be considered as part of the selection pool.
Proof of performance files can be uploaded to your proposal under the section called “Supporting Files”.
It is recommended you begin securing the approved proof of performance now so you are able to submit a complete proposal by the deadline.
We expect presenters:
