Employer Resource Network USA National Peer Learning Conference

ERN-USA®  transforms companies one employee at a time through the support and growth of existing employer resource networks, the development of new networks, peer learning across all partners, and in-depth evaluation to demonstrate high impact for employees, employers, government and communities.

What is the ERN?

At the low cost of $225 you will receive 2 full days of collaborative learning, expert presentations, business development, and networking opportunities!  By attending the ERN USA Peer Learning Conference you are not only opening your business up to the wisdom, best practices, and success tools that others are utilizing around the nation, but you are also inviting others to learn and grow from the strengths and successes of your business.  From breakfast with keynote speaker to networking cocktail hour and dinner reception you will have time and space to share, learn, and network.  In addition, because of the location of the conference you will be a very short distance from excellent food vendors and many activities including the Rivers Casino, Proctors Theater, Via Aquarium, Museum of Innovation, and much more!
