Arkansas SHRM understands the challenges related to the COVID-19 virus, as well as the current workplace policy changes and restrictions due to the illness. The welfare of our membership and conference attendees is of utmost concern.

With this in mind, the Arkansas SHRM 2020 HR Conference and Expo and Arkansas SHRM Employment Law and Legislative Conference (ELLA) will not take place on October 12-15, 2020.

Both events will be held in 2021. The ARSHRM HR Conference & Expo will be held on May 5-7, 2021 at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa, and Convention Center in Rogers. ELLA will be held on September 23-24, 2021 at Robinson Center & the Doubletree Hotel in Little Rock.

All current registrants and other participants for the HR Conference & Expo will be able to attend the 2021 scheduled event without additional costs. We will also open a new registration period relative to the new date. As in the past, ELLA will have a separate registration cost and registration period.
