Founded by volunteers, HRIA promotes and encourages maintenance of professional standards in the field of human resources management and works to help define the standards and processes for certification as a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP).
Volunteerism has, and continues to be, an important cornerstone of the Association. Through the participation of volunteers the HRIA is able to develop new programs, organize member events and advance strategic initiatives in the HR profession.
The HRIA has numerous portfolios that members can get involved in, for a list of all opportunities click here.
Our volunteers make a substantial contribution to the continued success of HRIA through their time, commitment and efforts.
The rewards to volunteering include:
Earning CHRP recertification points
Gaining valuable experience
Helping guide the future direction of the HR profession
Connecting with HR professionals
Sharing your HR insights with others
It is best if committee members track time spent on the committee for recertification purposes. Use the Time Log provided to track your time volunteering.
