Making the Case to Attend to Your Supervisor

Harsh economic times have caused many professional development budgets to be reduced considerably. Regardless of the merits of the NHRMA 2014 Conference & Tradeshow (and we think there are many!), you may need to justify your attendance to your supervisor. 

Here are some things you will want to consider:

  • Focus on the specific information that you will be able to bring back to your organization.
  • 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.
  • If you need Recertification Credits, remind your supervisor the NHRMA 2014 Conference is a great way to earn HRCI credits. 
  • Explain what your plans are regarding how your projects/tasks will be taken care of while you are away.
  • Offer to share a hotel room to reduce expenses.
  • Be sure to check out the registration rates and register early to save your company money
