Program Guidelines
Share |

The NYHRPS Program Committee works closely with the Board, members, and other committees to bring the most current topics and thought leadership to its programs. Additionally, we use input from member surveys, data from national HRPS, and other affiliates to provide cutting-edge thought leadership, practical benchmarking, and stimulating topics for the seasoned HR membership community.

We accept proposals for new program ideas and we typically plan programs one year in advance.

Our Program Committee also follows guidelines in shaping the actual presentations:

  • New thought leadership or subject matter experts who can provide our audience with new insight on important and timely HR and business issues across industry sectors
  • Compelling presentations that are meaningful with usable takeaways for our membership
  • Consultants who present are requested to bring a client as a case study to illustrate the story and share lessons learned
  • Excellent visual content and thought-provoking questions crafted for our HR audience
  • Opportunity for audience interaction, participation, Q&A
  • Strong presentation skills
  • No sales pitches, pure “product presentations”, or self-promotion 

If you would like to propose a program idea, please click on the following link NYHRPS PROGRAM PROPOSAL, save the form to your computer, fill out the form and then send it to our Administrator, Alison Normand at

The proposal will be forwarded to, and acknowledged by, a member of the Program Committee.  While we greatly appreciate all ideas, please note that you may receive one of these responses:

a) We have recently addressed this topic, or already plan to within the coming year

b) Interesting topic/speaker to develop for the forthcoming year

c) We appreciate your interest, but the Program Committee is declining.
