    The Central Region of IPMA-HR is holding an annual 3-day conference to promote sound practices of public sector human resources professionals throughout the Central Region of the United States.  The conference theme is "Road to a New Reality - Rerouting Public Sector Success through HR".

    The Central Region's membership consists of 2,000 members of HR professionals from federal, state and local governments from 12 states. We are currently accepting speaking proposals for our 2023 Training Conference.   

    The Central Region of IPMA-HR invites you to submit a proposal to share your experience and expertise with your human resource colleagues.  Others will benefit from your experience while you make a valuable contribution to the profession’s field of knowledge.  This year’s conference will be held in-person at the Madison Concourse Hotel in Madison, WI from Sunday, June 11, 2023 to Wednesday, June 14, 2023. 

    IPMA-HR Central Region seeks experienced presenters with proven speaking ability.  Those with a track record of speaking and performing well at large conferences and events will be given preference.  We strive to offer a balanced program of educational sessions by selecting proposals which best fit within the framework and theme of our program. We are seeking presentations that will provide our conference attendees with information that will improve their performance on the job.  

    This conference, and all presentations, will help public sector HR detour its way around the constant road construction of human capital management through specialized Session Pathways. We will give preference to those proposals that link to our theme - "Road to a New Reality - Rerouting Public Sector Success through HR", and our potential topics (Yield, No Passing Zone, Road Map, Learner's Permit, Speed Trap Ahead, You're Going the Wrong Way!, No U-turn, Rest Area Ahead, Cruise Control and Joyride). We want to pave new ways!

    The due date to submit a proposal is February 14, 2023.  From the proposals accepted, final selections will be made by the Conference Program Committee in late-February.
