Central Interior

The Central Interior Advisory Council handles the planning and implementation of local HRMA activities and is made up of members representing a broad range of HR experience levels and areas of practice.

Do you work in human resources (full time or part time) or carry out elements of HR in your current role? Would you like to win a $180 gift certificate for professional development from HRMA? If you are not currently a member of HRMA, please complete this survey. The survey takes less than five minutes and closes December 15th, 2014.

HRMA members are encouraged to participate on the Advisory Council and/or provide suggestions and ideas of local interest. The Central Interior Advisory Council welcomes input from all HRMA members who would like to be involved with the growth of HR practice in the region. A call for volunteers on the Council is made in the spring each year.

To see upcoming activities, please view our calendar.
