Rhode Island SHRM State Chapter

Dear RI SHRM Member:

The NE Regional Student Conference and Case Competition is quickly approaching (April 11 and 12, 2014 in Providence) and we need your help.  To help ensure the success of this event we personally ask you to consider participating.  This is always a fun event, and, as a volunteer, this is an opportunity to give back by participating.  So, please consider our request to spend some a few hours volunteering while having a great time, and help our students - our future HR professionals - have a memorable student conference and case competition.

Thank you for considering this request.

All the best,
The RI SHRM Board

Would you like to help some talented young student get a great start to their HR career?

Would you like to impart your knowledge and wisdom to impressionable young minds?

Would you like to earn some HR Certification Institute recertification credits?

Would you like to do some great networking?

If you said “yes” to at least one of these questions, then have I got a great opportunity for you!

Details regarding the 2014 SHRM Northeast Regional Student Conference and Case Competition (being held in Providence, RI on Friday & Saturday, April 11th – 12th) can be found at: - AND WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE!!

To ensure the success of this event, we need 52 onsite volunteers on Friday and 22 volunteers on Saturday.  So far, we only have 8 volunteers registered for Friday and 11 for Saturday.  The conference and case competition is coming up quickly, so please spread the word that we need volunteers, and encourage your fellow chapter members to sign up!  Volunteers at this event help our students by supporting the future of our profession – but they also have a great time!  Volunteering just a few hours can help to make the conference and case competition a success!   We know everyone’s schedules are busy, but please help if you can, when you can.

Please use the following link to sign-up to be a volunteer!  All positions are listed with full descriptions including criteria.  If you need a hotel or need travel information that information is also available at this link:


Sponsorship opportunities also exist for state councils and chapters to financially support these efforts.  Chapters and/or state councils are especially encouraged to partner and become co-sponsors to make it financially feasible to be a sponsor for this special event. For example, the MA state council recently joined forces with the Northeast HR Association (NEHRA) chapter to become $1,500 sponsors.  (Thank you for your generosity!!!)

Attached is a copy of our sponsorship opportunities.  If nothing fits your current budget, but you still want to support our future HR professionals, please contact Laurie McIntosh at:

Let’s make 2014 the best year for our student conference and case competitions!!!
