Global Board of Advisors

Our global Board of Advisors is comprised of industry executives in various HR roles segmented by regional geography into three work groups (see below). Each group has 10 – 20 members from a cross-section of industries to ensure a working team with a breadth of knowledge and experience.

A seat on our advisory board supports an individual’s professional development and raises their profile in the HR community. It also serves as a personal forum for best practices, sharing, networking, learning and leadership. Board members provide input on Association resources, programs, and initiatives to ensure that they add value to membership, and they help evaluate and drive opportunities for growth and development.

North America group | EMEA group | APAC group

Members who are interested in being considered for a seat on the Board of Advisors should contact Renee Preston, Senior Vice President of Membership and Global Executive Director of the HRO Today Association.
