2019 IPMA-VA Spring Conference!

The 2019 Spring Conference was held Mar. 10th – 13th, 2019 at the Marriott Newport News City Center. Our theme this year was Everything Counts: HR Meeting the Challenge.  In today’s world, everything is important to someone – culture, benefits, promotional opportunities, etc.  As such, it’s no surprise that employees and leaders expect HR to not only know what is important, but how to effectively address every employee’s and the organization’s needs and desires.  Participants heard from national and local speakers who addressed many of the current challenges facing HR and organizations.
