Don’t Miss Out on the HR Bloggers at HR FL!

My fellow blogger and dear friend Stephen Geraghty-Harrison posted the following on his HR whY blog and gave me permission to print it here.  Check it out and check Steve’s blog out.  He shares a  great perspective on HR from the Gen Y point of view.

And hey – don’t forget to register for the HR Florida State Conference and Expo.  Early bird rate ends soon!

As social media director for the HR Florida State Council I am a member of the team responsible for planning and organizing the annual state conference and exposition.  This year’s event will be held in Orlando, Florida from August 30th to September 1st at the Rosen Shingle Creek resort.  Click here for more details. 

For the second year in a row, HR Florida will welcome a contingent of human resource bloggers we all know and love.  While I cannot yet divulge all of the incredible details regarding social media integration at the conference I can share a bit about our blogging panel.  As previously announced via @HRFlorida, we are very happy to report that we have the following bloggers confirmed to participate in our blogging panel. 

Bloggers UNITE!

Steve Boese, author of Steve Boese’s HR Technology.  Steve’s blog was recently ranked as number one in the Fistful of Talent/HR Capitalist Talent Management Blog Power Rankings.  He developed and serves as the instructor for a graduate course in human resources technology for Rochester Institute of Technology.  Steve is a co-host of the “HR Happy Hour” show on Blog Talk Radio which you must check out.  Check out Steve’s tweets and his contributions as a member of the SmartBrief of Workforce Advisory Board.

Trish McFarlane, author of HR Ringleader.  Trish recently changed jobs and is now an HR Business Partner for St. Louis Children’s Hospital.  From the tweets I’ve seen things seem to be going great with the new gig.  Trish is also one of the minds behind HRevolution, an “un-conference” for HR bloggers.  Planning for round two of HRevolution is currently underway and I am looking forward to hearing all of the details!  In addition to her full time job, Trish is a sought after speaker on human resources and social media, a regular contributor to Halogen Software’s “Lighter Side of HR,” co-founder of Women of HR and will begin contributing to HR Magazine UK in 2010.

Franny Oxford, author of Do the Work.  Franny is the epitome of hard work as a prerequisite for success.  As she states on her blog, “Risk taking is the name of the game,” and I fully agree.  She encourages professionals to get their hands dirty – do the work.  Franny is a human resources professional with an interest in operations, streamlining and helping companies increase their margins and profitability in a sustainable way.  She also tweets and is a member of the SmartBrief of Workforce Advisory Board. 

Mark Stelzner, author of Inflexion Point.  Mark is by far one of the smartest people in our community today.  Besides writing an awesome blog, Mark is also the founder of Job Angels, a grassroots organization aimed at helping people find gainful employment.  Check out this blog post if you’d like to find out just how this incredible movement started.  Follow Mark, Job Angels, and his contributions as a member of the SmartBrief of Workforce Advisory Board, it’s worth it.

William Tincup, author or The Human Capital Vendor Space (aka JPIE).  William is one of the brilliant minds behind Starr Tincup, which focuses on innovating human capital marketing.  He is also one of the most “in your face” professionals out there, and that is not necessarily a bad thing.  Through his business and his tweets, William pushes the envelope and encourages high level discussions within the human resource community.  I am seriously not worthy (channeling Wayne’s World). 

Mike VanDervort, author of The Human Race Horses.  Mike is a fellow Floridian who is new to HR Florida and is this year’s wrangler of the HR bloggers.  He has over two decades of human resource and employee relations experience.  When not at his 8-5 job, Mike writes for his own blog, tweets and is a member of the SmartBrief on Workforce Advisory Board.
