Life Science HR Conference Expands Borders to Outside State Affiliates


About the Partnership
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it. Now, more than ever, we need to remove our regional borders and work together to support one another, the life science industry, and our members, through resources, valuable content, and the continued opportunity to connect with new networks. In this time of uncertainty, Biocom is excited to partner with outside state affiliates for our 2020 Life Science HR Virtual Conference to expand to California, and beyond, by extending the educational and networking opportunities from our conference to associations across the country. In partnership with AZ Bio, Georgia Bio, and Oregon Bio, we welcome the entire life science HR community to participate in the conference, regardless of your state affiliate. If your company is a member of one of these organizations, we are pleased to offer you the Biocom member rate.
