Committees aren’t about people sitting around a table.
They’re about putting minds around an idea.

Working as a committee member is a valued role that supports the growth of the Association. Members can sharpen skill sets, connect with a cross-section of HR professionals, and increase their visibility within the industry by contributing just 1 to 2 hours a month.

Please review the job descriptions for committee members and co-chairs to understand the skills and time commitment needed. To join a committee, contact Steve Farace at
