Headshot Information

We are excited to offer all IU HR Community members the opportunity to get a professional headshot. We are partnering with IU Communications to provide headshots throughout our meeting on November 3rd. Headshots are complementary for those that would like one and will be offered in 5-minute increments in the Purdue Room at University Towers. The Purdue Room is located upstairs from our meeting room and participants can access the stairway or elevators in the lobby of University Towers, near the meeting registration table. After your headshot is taken, IU Communications will edit images and provide them back in about 3-4 weeks.

For those that cannot attend the meeting but would like a headshot, we are working on a make-up day in Bloomington in late November. More information is forthcoming.
