Welcome to the Eastern Iowa Human Resource Association

EIHRA members,

Undeniably you have had to alter, change, adapt and pivot during these unprecedented times.  We hope that you are staying safe and finding the resources you need to respond to this crisis.  The coronavirus pandemic have challenged individuals and companies to develop and/or implement mitigation measures to help reduce community spread.  The EIHRA Board is responding and we have developed a plan.  For the month of April 2020, we have transitioned all of our meetings and program events to virtual meetings instead of in person gatherings. Zoom information is in the April Newsletter sent to your email or on the secure Members page. We will reevaluate this plan in mid April to see if we need to extend this plan to our May meetings and events.  Please note: the May 12th all day conference has been canceled and we are working on rescheduling.

To assist our HR professional members, we are planning to host weekly presentations throughout April focused on up to date information on the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please forward your topic suggestions to eyeoneihra@gmail.com and we will work on gathering available speakers.
