Knowledge Centers

Combining content, connections, and collaboration, Knowledge Centers are the Association’s newest member program that bring together liked-minded members to dive deep into topics of shared interest, in addition to volunteer leadership and speaking opportunities. Simply put, Knowledge Centers allow you to connect with other members who understand what you’re dealing with, without lots of explanation. Each Knowledge Center will feature quarterly one-hour virtual meetings that combine expert-led content with shared problem-solving discussions, resulting in new ideas, improved processes, and ultimately, a competitive edge in today’s landscape.

Association Conference 

Registration is now open for The 2023 HRO Today Association Conference and Awards Program, taking place December 1st from 11 AM to 1:30 PM ET via Zoom.  This year’s theme is Planning for Tomorrow: The Future of Work and will delve into the ever-shifting work landscape by providing real-world insights into the disrupters that organizations have to overcome as well as the opportunities they face and how to solve them.  We will touch on the transformative potential of technology and skill advancement, while also addressing the imperative yet sometimes daunting task of anticipating and readying for upcoming disruptions in the labor market and the way people work and live. By attending the 2023 Conference, you will gain insight on how you can plan for tomorrow and the future of work.
