On behalf of the 2018 AHRD Research in the America’s Conference Team, I welcome you to the 2018 Conference Proceedings. This year, we have been able to include some of the best scholarship in the field of HRD. Through the thousands of volunteer hours, more than 200 refereed submissions were developed, reviewed, revised and placed into this document. Without these contributions, the conference would not be possible. By clicking on the View Full Schedule button, you will be able to find the conference proceedings. Submissions can be found by searching for the symposium session number, by author or by title by either using the table of contents tool in the upper left of the navigation bar or using the search tool.We sincerely thank you for your contribution to this year’s conference.
