“Given so many critical changes on the national front, the expertise of Human Resources professionals is needed now more than ever. These changes impact every aspect of our lives, which in turn, impact our workforce. As a result, at a time like this, talented HR professionals can offer their companies invaluable support.
As the winner of the 2018 NAAAHR National Chapter of the Year Award, NAAAHR Atlanta Chapter not only accepts the challenge of providing HR professionals with the tools necessary but, serves as a leader in areas such as idea generation, diversity within the profession, and proactive engagement within our communities.
As Chapter President, working with our Board, we will continue to focus on providing innovative programming and development opportunities for our members. Additionally, we are committed to elevating our prominence amongst professional organizations within the Metro Atlanta area and North Georgia. Finally, we will place an emphasis on growing our Affinity Groups which are so valuable to those who have a focus in particular areas of HR.
Invest in your future! I invite you to join us at a NAAAHR Atlanta Chapter or Affinity Group Meeting. Using our various Social Media channels, share your thoughts about our topics and help us continue the conversation about so many important issues.
Always remember, as an HR community working alone, we can go faster, however working together, we can go farther."
In Response to Coronavirus (covid-19)
“We are aware of the confirmed positive case of the coronavirus in Fulton County and are monitoring the situation closely, along with following the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). There is no higher priority to our organization than the safety of our Members, Visitors, Sponsors and Partners.
We want you to feel confident when attending any NAAAHR Atlanta Chapter meetings, gatherings or functions. As a result, for our future Monthly Chapter Meetings we have enhanced our communication with Georgia Power, ensuring access to hand sanitizer is provided as well as hand washing areas are clearly identified.
Moreover, for future networking events, Affinity Group meetings or other Atlanta Chapter related gatherings, our Leadership has committed to meeting with owners/management of these locations to confirm they meet our standards in regards to this concern.
We ask that if you have a cold, fever, or any other symptom, or have been exposed to the virus please stay home. We care about you and our organization and want to do our part to work together in keeping our community healthy and safe.
Thank you for your being affiliated with NAAAHR Atlanta Chapter."
