Next Concept HR Association (NCHRA)

Want to share your expertise with innovative, passionate HR professionals at a premier HR conference? Speak at HR West, where HR goes to find out What's Next. The future of HR starts here!

Recognized as home to the world's most creative business models and technologies, the San Francisco Bay Area has earned the distinction of “the most innovative place on earth.” As the West's premier conference for HR professionals, HR West's community of attendees are drawn to the fresh content and contemporary insights into what's coming next in their profession. HR West 2020 will be attended by over 1,000 participants and its marketing reaches a community of over 30,000 HR professionals — presenting your name and organization as a chosen expert by one of the leading HR associations in the country.

We are looking for subject matter experts at the top of their field to deliver dynamic, innovative and future-oriented presentations to the country's most passionate HR audience at the 36th annual HR West® Conference, March 9 - 11, 2020 in thriving Oakland, CA, just minutes from San Francisco & the Silicon Valley. Concurrent sessions range in length and cover a wide variety of topics relevant to human resources professionals.

The average attendee at HR West has over 15 years’ experience and is at the manager level or above. Our attendees know HR and are seeking to learn about the latest in the field particularly from speakers that are also accomplished HR practitioners.

What are we looking for in your proposal?

  • Educational content that addresses the ever-evolving definition of work, transforming organizations today and relevant to members of our diverse audience.
  • Relevant, interactive, topical proposals that provide new information or skills to use immediately.
  • A meaningful learning experience for attendees of your session.
  • Consultants are encouraged to pair with an HR practitioner to further resonate with the audience.
  • Content that is new, insightful, fresh, and future-oriented and helps our community answer the question, What’s Next?

While we appreciate you might have a product to sell, submitting a speaking proposal in an effort to accomplish this is not the appropriate fit. Please contact Denise Granados at <> for opportunities to reach our audience

Sound interesting?
Please submit your proposal by 4:00pm PT, September 13, 2019. Also, if you know others who fit this bill, please forward them this information.

A Note Concerning Honoraria: We look for contributors willing to share their expertise pro bono in the spirit of fulfilling the Association's mission: "To educate, connect and lead the HR profession to achieve individual and organizational excellence.” HR West does not cover travel, expenses, speaker fees, or any other expenses. If the proposal is accepted, the presenter's HR West 2020 conference registration is complimentary.

Thank you for your interest and continued support of learning and the HR profession.
