Appalachian Human Resources Summit

"Human Resources Leads the Way!"

We reimagined the 2020 HR Summit!!  

October 13, 14, 15, and 16 

In light of the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, presenters, and conference attendees, the 2020 HR Summit was virtual. 

The 2020 HR Summit sessions were unlike any virtual sessions you participated in before.  Each session began at 9am EST and was 90 minutes.  Every session was engaging and offered opportunities to network with fellow HR professionals, participate in hands-on activites, and interact with the presenters throughout the entire session.    

Thank you for participating virtually in 2020 and (hopefully) in-person in 2021!!   


All proceeds from the HR Summit, and all IOHRM professional development activities, go to enhance our IOHRM students' educational and research experiences.  To learn more about the activities in which the IOHRM students are engaged, please visit our IOHRM newsfeed or the HR Science Research Team page.
