Welcome to the Eastern Iowa Human Resource Association

Board Message

Welcome to 2022!  We are pleased to announce that the monthly member meetings will have a hybrid option for attendees.  Our January presentation is on Self Care and Improving Habits & Goals.  Find out more or register here.

This year also begins a time of re-building our chapter after the past 24 months of rapid changes and extreme circumstances.  We want to THANK our board members who have completed their terms: Samantha Rogers, Student Liaison, and Heidi Hromidko, Past-President.  They provided invaluable insight and guidance to current and future HR Professionals.

Our chapter also couldn’t have survived the last 2 years without our outgoing President, Heather Golden.  A sincere Thank You to her for stepping up and leading us through the last several tumultuous months.  She will stay on as Past-President and continue to provide assistance to the new Board.

The new Board will be installed at the January meeting at 7:45 am.  Their bio’s will be added to the web page so be on the look out for them.

If you would like to volunteer to be on a committee or fill any empty board positions, please contact us at eyeoneihra@gmail.com.

Thanks and here’s to a Happy New Year!
