About us

Established In 1951

The National Human Resources Association (NHRA) is focused on advancing the individual career development, planning and leadership of human resource (HR) professionals. Through professional networking programs and development services offered across the country, we strive to support human resource professionals throughout their career life cycle. From intern to executive, Human Resources leads the way for change in today’s businesses.

In today’s dynamic workplace, human resource professionals are expected to add value to their organizations. In addition to managing traditional office necessities, Human Resources is expected to contribute to key organizational challenges. These include facilitating mergers and acquisitions, improving productivity and quality, and improving the ability of an organization to bringing new products to market. Most importantly, as Human Resource professionals, we all vow to continuously improve the company’s return on its greatest asset: its people!

The National Human Resources Association is your career partner. Together, we can lead the way to the future of human resources!
