Welcome From Our Co-Chairs


On behalf of the South Puget Sound Chapter of SHRM, we would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the NHRMA Conference's Diamond Anniversary during the 75th Annual NHRMA Conference & Tradeshow in Tacoma, WA. The Conference will be held in beautiful Downtown Tacoma from Wednesday, October 9, 2013 through Friday October 11, 2013.
As human resource professionals and business leaders we are constantly experiencing change and need to anticipate the direction the future will take us. Our 2013 conference theme - “A Bridge to Tomorrow” - will discuss the future of HR and managing tomorrow’s workforce. This year’s Conference will provide you with the speakers, sessions, tools, and materials you will need to lead your organizations (and yourself) into the future with confidence. You will also have ample opportunity to learn of the latest resources and services available to HR professionals and business leaders as you visit with our Sponsors and Tradeshow participants.
The revitalized historic downtown Tacoma has so much to offer. From the Chihuly Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, WA State History Museum, and Children’s Museum, to the urban college scene and fantastic restaurants…there are plenty of ways to spend your free time when you’re not in workshops. And don’t forget to visit the 2 miles of Tacoma’s Ruston Way waterfront with its beautiful walking trail while you’re here. You will be amazed at the beauty of the Hotel Murano and the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of the light rail that takes you to various stops throughout the downtown area. As stated on the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center’s website, “Tacoma remains a destination spot with the amenities of a big city and the charm of a small town. An ever-changing community full of potential and excitement, Tacoma is poised to embrace the future.” Join us for the great Conference and stay an extra day to experience all that Tacoma has to offer.
We look forward to seeing you “on the bridge” at the 75th Annual NHRMA Conference & Tradeshow!
