    These members will also be recognized at our next regular meeting with the receipt of a special “Study Success Kit” as further assistance in their mission to continue learning as HR professionals!

    Interested participants should at to reserve your spot. ACT NOW as the deadline for sign up is March 1, 2019!


    If you have been thinking about pursuing your certification this year, now is the time to jump on board and get it done! 

    Our chapter offers the opportunity to participate in an interactive study group led by local subject matter experts- and those who have participated in the past (myself included) can attest to the fact that it is a major learning asset.
