Your RSVP puts several wheels into motion, including space, materials, snacks, and even waitlists. Event "no shows" come at a financial cost to Meetup organizers and sometimes prevent others from attending in your place. 

We understand that plans change! If you become unable to attend for any reason, please let us know ASAP by changing your RSVP, leaving a comment, or contacting me directly. 



Members who end up on a waitlist will automatically be moved to the attendee list (and notified via if/when space opens up. Entry is not guaranteed for anyone not on the official attendee list. 



Let others know that you're attending by posting the following to social media...

1. The facilitator will introduce all attendees to the history, format, recent news, and current sponsors of the HRHotSeat Chicago inclusive mastermind community. 

2. We will divide into smaller groups. 

3. Select attendees will be invited to describe real-life HRHotSeat challenges that they currently face. Each group will then brainstorm questions, solutions, ideas, resources, and connections to help solve the presented challenges. 

NOTE: HRHotSeat challenges must be submitted/approved in advance of the upcoming Meetup. Please take a moment to review the HRHotSeat Criteria ( and include your challenge with your RSVP or contact me directly if you would like to benefit from the HRHotSeat! 

4. All attendees may reconvene for a brief recap of HRHotSeat challenges presented and closing thoughts from the facilitator. 

Remaining time may be spent networking or talking further about the presented challenges. 



1. Always bring photo ID with you (matching your full first and last name as displayed in your profile) to HRHotSeat Meetups, in case required by building security. 

2. Arrive on time to get the most out of the Meetup and honor your fellow attendees.

4. Bring business cards to share with fellow attendees. 

5. Invite fellow HR professionals to register for HRHotSeat Chicago and attend the upcoming Meetup with you! Diversity of attendee background, experience, expertise, and perspective makes for the best possible mastermind conversation.
