Providing professional development opportunities on a regular basis for our members and guests is extremely important to our association. Some of the meetings we hold address changes in laws that affect our work and to better understand, interpret, and implement policies. Some address the pesky, but weighty, issues that we must resolve in our daily interactions with employees. Some are designed to support our strategic management goals.

 

We include at the bottom of this web page examples of meeting topics that our members have had the opportunity to participate in and gain information from each month.

 

We welcome suggestions for future topics from our members as we strive to present worthwhile discussions of topics interesting to human resources professionals. Please submit your event suggestions directly to any of your association directors.
