This Committee typically meets in Q3 each year to plan speaker selection for the following year.

There are typically 8 chapter meetings per year that require speakers.  Each learning event will have 2 co-leaders responsible for speaker arrangements such as contacting the agreed upon speaker, negotiating speaker fees (if applicable), assisting with travel, determining AV needs, ensuring certification credits are procured, introducing the speaker on the day of the event, speaker appreciation gifts, etc. – everything from speaker solicitation to assisting the speaker on the day of the event and any required follow up afterward such as a Committee debrief or thank you note to speaker.  

You may be asked to assist other Committee team co-leads also working to bring excellent programs to Richmond SHRM members.
