The 2018 Conference, HR Charting the Course will be held on September 26-28th in Coralville. We are currently looking for volunteers to either chair a planning committee or volunteer to assist on a committee. A chapter member volunteering on the planning committee is a great way to get funding for your chapter. The State Council has specified the following kickbacks to the chapters:

Conference Kickbacks go to the following positions:
-Conference Co-Directors (can chose to give all to their chapter or split with the State Council and Chapter)
-Each committee chair or co-chair (if they are different chapters, then this will be split between the two chapters)
1. Programs
2. Registration
3. Sponsors/Exhibitors
4. Facilities
5. Marketing/Technology
6. Volunteers
7. Treasurer

In addition, volunteers receive additional rewards – Free Conference Registration (all days), Comped Hotel Room registration and parking, mileage reimbursement for meetings/conference, conference attire.

If the someone volunteers on a committee or at the conference, there is not a kickback to the chapter and there is not free registration to the conference.

Please share with your chapter - if there is someone interested in volunteering, please have them reach out directly to Amy ( and me ( by Friday, January 26th with the following:
• Yes, I am interested in volunteering
o Which committee or committees?
o What level of volunteering?

We would love any questions or thoughts you may have as well. We look forward to hearing from your chapters!
