Our Association Award Dinner and Gala will be held in conjunction with our first HRO Today Services and Technology Association Summit, a conference and training retreat for HR services and technology providers, analysts, and practitioners working in or with a services partner. This event will take place October 17th and 18th at the Union League in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Awards Dinner and Gala will be held the evening of October 18th.
