Can you believe it? The 2018 HR Florida Conference and Expo will celebrate a ruby anniversary this August. The HR Florida State Council has brought you 39 totally rockin’ Florida conferences and this year we are hitting 40! Our celebration will be all about the rubies, including ruby slippers.
To kick off the fun, we’ve created a game for all to participate in. Each chapter has been given a number of ruby red slippers in the form of a stress ball. That slipper will be hidden in photos in a “Where’s Waldo” style and posted on all social media platforms. You can join the fun and get in on the game by telling us where, when and if you see the ruby slipper. Our hashtag #WheresRuby will make it easy for you to find the photos.
To kick it up a notch, everyone that finds 100 ruby slippers and comments on each post by saying, “I see the #WheresRuby slipper from #HRFL18,” (make sure you are selecting public view so we will be able to see who you are and count your finds) before Saturday, August 18th will be entered into a drawing for priority seating for three at the Tuesday night concert plus 10 free drink tickets.
We encourage posts to go viral – chapter marketing ambassadors have a special prize waiting for them if they can achieve 500 likes on their #WheresRuby postings, so help them out please. Use the “tell two friends” method and we can get them a one night hotel stay during the conference.
You can also get in on the game by wearing ruby slippers and posting a picture of them to #WheresRuby. You know the HR Florida president and president elect have the most incredible shoes, so try and show them up.
The entire executive council cannot wait to see everyone at the fabulous Gaylord Palms for this year’s Ruby Anniversary HR Florida Conference and Expo, and yes, bring those red shoes as there will be plenty of photo opportunities. There really is no place like HRFL18.
