Hello Tennessee SHRM!

Welcome to Memphis – Home of Elvis, the Blues, and BBQ! We welcome you to the 2012 TN SHRM Conference & Exposition at the Cook Convention Center in Downtown Memphis. We are glad you are here! What a great week is planned for you! Put on your blue suede shoes and get ready to do some walkin’ in Memphis. Hat’s off to SHRM-Memphis for hosting this year’s conference. They have a great mix of speakers and events lined up for you.

We hope you have taken a few minutes to download the Truexpo smart phone app for your Androids, iPads, and iPhones. If so, everything you need to know about this year’s conference will be at your fingertips. You can create your own customized agenda, follow all 41 of the speakers, take/upload photos, and download speaker’s slides.

We are also celebrating our first anniversary this month! HR Professionals of Greater Memphis was begun a year ago in September! Since we have expanded to cover Mississippi and Arkansas SHRM chapters, we have changed our name to HR Professionals Magazine. In addition to expanding our reach, we have expanded our size from 28 pages to 36 pages! Thank you to our subscribers and our sponsors for making this happen!

I am excited about bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage of all events here at the Conference on Twitter at @cythomps and on our Professionals Magazine. Remember the Twitter hashtag for the 2012 TN SHRM Conference & Exposition is #TnSHRMcon12.  I hope you will join me for all the fun @cythomps on Twitter and Like us on Facebook! We will be posting photos from the conference daily. Please stop by Booth 203 and register for door prizes and sign up for your free subscription if you are not currently on our mail list.
