Call for Presentations


    For our annual conference and monthly meetings, SHRM Olympia’s goal is to create lively and valuable learning and networking experiences for every participant.

    Submitter Responsibilities

    • Meet all deadlines. 
    • Once accepted, provide your presentation in electronic format to SHRM Olympia no later than the deadline provided upon confirmation of selection. The format should be in MS PowerPoint. You must present the workshop content as you describe it in your submission.
    • If possible, include ”Next Steps” or recommended actions for attendees to encourage practical application after the workshop.
    • Consistent with the presentation format, include at least one two-person or small group exercise that can be facilitated in an interactive environment to encourage attendee interaction as a way to further illustrate your message and as another form of networking.
    • In your workshop, announce that your presentation can be downloaded from the conference website.
    • Do not add a co-presenter or change the identity or number of presenters without approval. Submissions with multiple presenters must be submitted as a single proposal. All proposed presenters must agree to terms and conditions of the Call for Presentations.
    • Honor SHRM Olympia’s commitment to provide meaningful, applicable education by not promoting the presenter’s practice, services, or products. Your business logo may only appear in the footer of your presentation or on handouts. We encourage you to include your contact information on a closing slide so that attendees may contact you should they desire to do so.
    • If selected, allow SHRM Olympia to copy your presentation materials to our website, or to a conference USB drive, if sponsored, or to any other electronic source for distribution.
    * By clicking on the above submission options, I agree to SHRM Olympia's submitter's responsibilities.
