Volunteer to Gain New Insight

LWHRA is a volunteer-run organization, and your support makes our programs possible. Volunteering is a great way to grow your network and to serve the HR community. It is also a great way to gain new insight into the industry and learn more about the association.

We are currently seeking volunteers in several functions, including serving on our membershipvolunteer, and partnership committees. We even have a rarely-available co-chair opening in our Special Interest Group committees.
