    NHRA Members Interested in SHRM-CP/SCP Certification,

    It’s been more than a year since our last HR certification prep class and we’ve received enough interest to offer the possibility again. We need a minimum of five qualified individuals to purchase discounted SHRM preparation materials to conduct classes.

    You must be an NHRA member to participate in the free preparation class.

    $ 495 + tax and shipping SHRM-CP/SCP preparation materials (a $200 savings through NHRA)

    Other costs associated with the certification include:

    $ 300 Testing fee for SHRM members (includes $50 non-refundable application fee) or

    $400 for non-SHRM members

     Applications for the Winter testing window are being accepted through October 20, with late applications accepted until November 10 with an additional $75 fee.

    HR Round Table brings business professionals together. We discuss current or emerging human resource and business topics. We learn from each other and form networks.

    HR Round Table is FREE and open to the public. We are HR professionals, resource partners working with HR, business owners, stakeholders, and key personnel. Every business facet can learn and contribute valuable information.

    During each one-hour session, attendees discuss a designated topic with questions provided by NHRA. We share information, learn from other’s experience, and develop relationships that continue to benefit participants. There will be a facilitator to help guide discussion, but there is no required participation.

    Round Tables begin and end promptly at the designated meeting times. Respecting participants’ time is important to us!

    Strategic HR is based upon mutual Relationships and Partnerships.  Union Environments can pose significant barriers and challenges for both. There is a common perception/characterization of union officials as adversarial and untrustworthy.  Learn how these challenges be overcome.

    This not to be missed topic is for HR and other business professionals who are currently or may someday work in a union environment.
