Volunteer Centre



Volunteering at HRPA is a rewarding membership experience and volunteers are critical to the association's continued success.

With the expertise and involvement of members, we create awareness of workplace issues, promote excellence in human resources management practices and provide services that support the HR community, knowledge-sharing and continuous professional development.

HRPA members are involved in a variety of
volunteer service opportunities including:

  • Board of Directors
  • Committees
  • Annual Conference & Trade Show
  • Experts Bureau
  • Local HRPA Chapter executive and committees

“Being an HRPA volunteer has given me the opportunity to influence how the profession is perceived by both HR professionals and other business professionals and partners. It is also a chance to help shape the future of the Association so it continues to meet the needs of our future HR leaders and the businesses that employ them.”
