Maine HR Convention



The Maine HR Convention returned to the Samoset in 2023!

May 8-11, 2023

We return to the Samoset this May – the ancestral home of the Maine HR Convention. With a mix of everything the HR community loves about this conference – keynotes from around the country, information from the business and human sides of HR, networking, and camaraderie. Our purpose remains true – making a difference in the lives of your employees, the direction of your organization, your career path, AND how you impact your neighboring communities.

Three Important Items for 2023:

  • Monday Afternoon. Convention week starts on May 8th, with a pre-conference keynote and reception in the late afternoon. Everyone registered for the Tuesday conference day will be able to join us for these bonus Monday activities at no extra charge! Plus, additional Monday programming for MESHRM Leadership Day and HR Basic Training.
  • HR Basic Training. For those new to HR (or early in your career), we have programming to meet your needs on Convention Monday and Tuesday, allowing you to mix and match with any of the other offerings designed for more experienced professionals later in the week. Learn More.
  • Health & Safety Policies. Your welfare is our first concern, and the Convention will adhere to all rules set by the State of Maine CDC, the host facility (the Samoset), and the needs of our attendees. As of 1/3/23, we anticipate no indoor mask requirement, though it is encouraged.
