Because we have an active membership community, we provide opportunities for all of our members to get involved in the association and set its course for the future. Our association gives opportunities to network, learn, and develop standards and practices within HR(O). Our member committees provide a forum to ensure that we can better sustain momentum on membership activities and outputs, as well as provide additional roles to engage, lead, and learn.Each committee is led by a chair or co-chairs, one board of advisor and a member; members who express interest will become member chairs in September. Membership in committees is open to all current association members. The committees will provide each member the chance to become more engaged in the association and help us focus on our strategic initiatives for the year. This is a great way for multiple people in your organizations to get involved in setting standards and practices within the industry, network, and participate in the association.
We have formed the following committees, which will meet monthly, during the third week of each month:
1) Member Services: discusses activities including social networking, member newsletters, the association website, new and prospect membership, and orientation). Meets the third Thursday of each month, 9 – 10 a.m. EST.
2) Professional Development/Programming: discusses activities including networking opportunities/events, certification, events such as HRO Today Forums, award programs, TLCs and partnerships). Meets the third Thursday of each month, 10 – 11 a.m. EST.
3) Standards and Practices: discusses activities including the Baker’s Dozen ranking process, other focus groups as determined, research, content, and pulse discussions) Meets the third Wednesday of each month, 10 – 11 a.m. EST.
