HelloHoover! Programs

Now planning for 2022 events!

The inaugural HelloHoover! STEM talent attraction event, sponsored by the Hoover Industrial Development Board, was held on May 25-26, 2021. The event brought key Hoover employers and interested students and recent graduates together for a virtual networking and talent recruitment opportunity. The Hoover IDB is excited to build on the great success of this program and is planning more micro events for  2022 and a key marquee event in Fall 2022.

We are actively seeking members of the business community to serve on the planning committee for future HelloHoover! events. If you would like to serve on this committee, or learn more about HelloHoover!, please email us at hellohoover@hooveralabama.gov
