From Our Members

“As a Human Resource professional, you are invited to a number of seminars and networking events. The challenge is finding those that provide the best opportunity for professional development, exchanging best practices and engaging in high quality networking with peers. After attending the Human Resources Executive Alliance event, I can tell you that they have it mastered. Having the opportunity to hear first hand perspectives from the CEO of one the largest healthcare systems in the region was priceless. The HREA is the premiere networking alliance for Human Resources."
