2019 is the 25th Anniversary of the HR Indiana State Conference. A 25th anniversary is traditionally a silver anniversary, so our theme is “The Stars of the Silver Screen”. Based on your favorite movie celebrities, silver screen elegance, the classic movies everybody loves, and silver colors!

The HR Indiana Conference is one of the largest regional human resources conferences in the United States. At our 2018 annual conference, we attracted over 1,600 attendees and over 175 exhibitors. We will continue to grow in 2019 and we invite you to be a part of it!

Our goal is to be a best in class, regionally-focused SHRM conference, both in quality of our programming and in our attendance. We offer world-renowned keynote speakers, three days of educational sessions, networking opportunities and exposure to the latest HR products and services. No matter if you are just starting out as an HR Generalist, or you are a Senior VP of HR, HR Indiana has just the right education for you.


We are dedicated to advancing the field of human resources in Indiana by providing information, leadership and opportunities for local chapters and SHRM members across the state.

We meet this mission through a variety of initiatives, led by a state council of over 30 volunteers, including the presidents of 15 local chapters that are geographically located throughout the state to serve HR professionals within their communities. Through our state council volunteer leaders, we work to advance our mission in many ways.


Our #1 connection point, resource, and developmental opportunity is our annual state HR conference, HR Indiana. Over 1,600 attendees gather each year in Indianapolis to learn more about the profession, to connect to others, to get energized, to advance their skills.

Our state conference one of the largest in the United States and, as such, has plenty of resources, outstanding key note speakers, and most certainly lots of fun. If you connect in only one way with our organization, connect at our state conference. You will be a fan and I’m certain we’ll see you back year after year.

We have several other initiatives we are focusing on, including developmental, educational, and connection opportunities for students interested in the profession. We are also one of the top supporters in the country of the SHRM Foundation, which helps deliver scholarships to deserving HR professionals and students and provide HR solutions for the workplace for all.

We also work with several partner organizations throughout the state, such as the Indiana Business Leadership Network, which focuses on improving business performance by leveraging disability inclusion in the workplace, supply chain, and marketplace.

Everything we do is to advance the HR profession. Continue to look through our site, see our accomplishments, connect with our volunteer leaders, and learn more how HR has an impact on our businesses and communities throughout the state of Indiana.
