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 – as Human Resources leads the way for change in today’s businesses. The mission of our Board is to serve and support our HR members and affiliates by providing professional networking forums and professional development programs for their members. We are pleased to provide professional development tools and opportunities via live meetings in our affiliate locations and via conferences and seminars delivered in conjunction with our training partners. Additionally we offer a wide range of on-demand, webcast and audiocast events.
The human resources profession has changed dramatically in the past century.
Gone are the days when HR’s primary functions were hiring, policing and paper pushing. In today’s dynamic workplace, human resource professionals are expected to add value to their organizations. In addition to managing traditional human resource functions, Human Resources is expected to contribute to such key organizational challenges as facilitating mergers and acquisitions, improving productivity and quality, improving the ability of an organization to bring new products to market, and 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!
The National and Local HR organizations have a variety of leadership opportunities available. In addition to the senior leadership positions (president and president-elect), locations have a variety of Director and Committee positions. While location structures vary, there are general responsibilities for each functional area.
