About Us

    The Norfolk Area Human Resource Association was formed by local human resource professionals and at the time of formation was referred to as the Norfolk Personnel Association. We were certified as a SHRM Affiliate Chapter in 2005.

    We meet monthly on the third Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. for lunch and featured speakers providing training, round table discussions, legal updates, insight into what issues our peers are dealing with and gathering to advance the profession of HR through networking.




    The support of the SHRM Foundation in 2016 qualified the Chapter to be a 2016 SHRM Foundation Chapter Champion!  The Chapter received this honor because it completed all three SHRM Foundation activities outlined in the SHAPE workbook - made a donation to the SHRM Foundation from chapter funds, conducted a leadership campaign, and hosted a fundraising event to benefit the SHRM Foundation.
