About the Roundtable

What is the Virtual HR M&A Roundtable?

The Virtual HR M&A Roundtable is a peer-learning forum for M&A professionals with experience managing people, culture, and leadership issues in Mergers & Acquisitions. We provide a solicitation-free environment where members share their own experience, including lessons learned and best practices.

Membership Requirements

Full Membership is limited to HR professionals who are either in a role with M&A responsibilities or HR and Corporate Development leaders who anticipate managing a transaction in the next 12 months. Full members are invited to join the National Conference and participate in virtual roundtable sessions.

Individuals with an interest in M&A, but who lack the required experience, are welcome to join as Associate Members and may join learning sessions. Membership determinations are at the sole discretion of the roundtable chair.

Format for Roundtable Sessions

The Virtual HR M&A Roundtable holds six 90-minute roundtable sessions every year. The first 30 minutes of each roundtable session features a “kick-off speaker” who will introduce the topic and share their experience. The middle 30 minutes of the meeting is a facilitated roundtable conversation, allowing members to take advantage of the collective experience of participants present. The final 30 minutes consists of best practice sharing, where each participant briefly shares any final thoughts on the topic. Meetings are held via teleconference and screen sharing. Notes and slides will be distributed after the meeting, as available.


From time to time, the roundtable will host supplemental learning sessions to cover topics of interest to the community. These sessions generally last 60 minutes and follow a more traditional webinar format with an expert speaker and limited time for Q&A.
