Meeting Fees

The Atlanta Chapter of NAAAHR is committed to providing top tier content for the development of Human Resource professionals. This remains the mission of the Board, the Plans & Professional Development committee and our corporate sponsors. This pandemic has been a weight for all of us to bear and we are empathetic to those who have been directly impacted by furlough or lay off due to COVID-19.

Consequently, many of us have had to think twice about investing in our professional development, when it comes at a financial cost. The NAAAHR Atlanta Chapter hears these concerns loud and clear. In an effort to continue to be a value-added resource for continuing education, while recognizing the economic impact of this global pandemic, we are adjusting our Chapter meeting fee structure.

Starting in September, we have temporarily discounted our Chapter meeting fees to the following:

$20 for Non-Members (a 43% discount)

$10 for Members (a 50% discount)

Free for Students

  • Professional development and educational opportunities at discounted member-only rates to enrich your marketability
  • Free Career management training with a personal resume and LinkedIn review via our strategic partner Career Spa, LLC
