Present at a Chapter Meeting

The Lake Washington Human Resource Association is now accepting proposals for 2017 educational presentations and courses for monthly membership luncheons. We invite you to submit a proposal to share your experience and expertise with our members and guests. Please carefully read the information below and complete all sections of the Presentation Application Form.

Review Criteria and Selection Process

Abstracts are reviewed and selected by a committee of volunteer professionals according to specific evaluation criteria. The review criteria include:

  • Originality of material
  • Practical applications of material
  • Overall quality of content
  • Previous participation in LWHRA programs
  • Well-defined focus
  • Evaluations from previous LWHRA or other events (if applicable)

If your proposal is selected, you will be contacted by a member of the Programs Committee to make arrangements to add your presentation to the Events Calendar. If your proposal is not selected for immediate addition to the Events Calendar, it will be retained on file one year for possible future use.

A Note Concerning Honoraria: SHRM has a tradition of using educational conference sessions as a platform for innovation in the field of Human Resources Management. We look for contributors who are willing to share their expertise without expectation of payment in the spirit of networking, a purpose for which the Association was founded.

Presenter Information

List all additional presenters on a separate form. Be sure to include a biography and special designations received for each presenter.

Abstract Guidelines

Explain why an HR Professional should attend this presentation, and list any tools or techniques they will be able to take away from the presentation and apply in the workplace, (e.g., "By the end of this session, the attendee will be able to…”). Please keep in mind that we use this information to market the program to our membership so we want to use your abstract as a tool to let them know that this program is one they "Do not want to miss!”
