Welcome to the Eastern Iowa Human Resource Association

Board Message

We look forward to seeing you all soon at the May-mini conference.  There are some AWESOME sessions lead by local and national subject matter experts.  Please remember to RSVP if you have not done that yet.  We are so excited to be hosting this again! Typically this has been called a “spring” conference but I think most of us would agree – SPRING is not quite here yet: )  Cheers to sunshine, learning, comradeship, networking and sharing of best practices in a couple weeks on May 10th.

Welcome new and returning members.  It is great to have you!!
