For more than 25 years, the NSPE Professional Engineers in Private Practice has hosted the Human Resource Directors' Roundtable. The participants are a unique community of human resource professionals in the engineering industry who come together for two days in the spring for continuing education, the opportunity to network with peers, and to share best practices. In 2009, the HR Roundtable was combined with another NSPE/PEPP roundtable for finance professionals in the engineering industry to form Synergy.
At Synergy human resource directors, financial professionals, and partners from architecture, engineering, and construction firms benchmark current activities, discuss emerging trends and issues, participate in continuing education network with peers, and share best practices. The two groups participate in joint sessions sharing their unique views on topics of importance to both.
This year Synergy will be held in Alexandria, Virginia, May 810. Topics for discussion will include: leadership development, future of the A/E industry, health care reform, and public funding.
