Welcome to the 2013 AZSHRM Annual State Conference Presentation & Handout page.  Below is a list of all our conference sessions where you can click on the links to view the session presentation and/or handouts.  As an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, handouts will not be provided to you during the sessions.  Instead we encourage you to download/access these online presentations to your electronic devices and bring them with you to the conference or to keep for future reference.  You may also print your own copies to bring with you to takes notes if you would like.

These session presentations and handouts will be available for 30 days following the conference for your review.  Please note that not all presentations have been submitted to us.  If there are sessions that do not have links to their presentations, please follow up with the speaker directly as they did not wish to publicly share their presentations but may do so if you contact them directly.
