HRO Today Association Committees provide opportunities for all members to get more involved, improve the way work gets completed and communicated within the Association, and ultimately help advance the HR profession. 

Committee members review, select and build resources and tools for our Association that support the work of professionals in our industry; develop educational components to assist members in advancing their profession; and create and share standards and best practices. 

Each committee has (at least) two co-chairs (one provider/analyst and one practitioner), as well as an appointed HRO Today liaison. Committees meet monthly, and a quarterly update call is also scheduled during which each committee reports on current initiatives, provides project updates, solicits feedback, and answers questions from the membership at large. 

Committee membership is open to all members in good standing. To request participation, please contact Renee Preston at or at 215-606-9562.
