The Annual Meeting is one of the most important events for members in the Association’s calendar. At this meeting we reviewed our key accomplishments from the past year, reflected on current challenges and opportunities, and took a moment to look forward to the year ahead. You can hear remarks from HRPA’s Chair, Patty Johns and our new CEO and Acting Registrar, Jodi Kovitz. It was an opportunity for members to have their voice heard through discussion and voting on important proposals and decisions.

This year’s Annual Meeting was available to members in a hybrid format, with members in-person and participants online through an interactive webcast.
