Whether you are new to the HR field or have many years of experience, we are a local starting point for networking, information, professional development and continued support of excellence in Human Resources.

The group, which is comprised of approximately 40 local human resources professionals, meets on the third Wednesday of each month at Illinois Valley Community College at 11:30 a.m. for a networking lunch followed by a speaker who addresses current topics and trends in the human resources industry. Sessions are typically pre-approved to count toward professional recertification hours for certified members.
