I have been a part of the HR Leadership Group for many years, and my involvement consistently offers me the opportunity to hear great speakers, network with other leaders, and to stay abreast of strategic HR issues. I have met so many great people that have become critical to the growth of my organization, and developed a network of people to rely on. I plan on being a member of the group for a long time to come.

"If you are a strategic HR leader engaged in the crux of people and strategy, HRLG is THE organization to join. It is one of the few professional associations where you can network with fellow HR colleagues about what is happening in your world. Three things set this group apart: the level and quality of strategic HR content in the programs; the amazing, committed and influential people you get to meet; and the strategic HR community you will become part of."

Amy B. Shannon, President,
HR Leadership Group of Northeast Ohio

Since joining the HR Leadership group, I have been impressed with the quality of the speakers and the content of their presentations. The strategic focus is an important differentiator. In addition, I’ve met some of the best HR and talent leaders in the region at the meetings. This is a great group to help me keep up on the rapid changes in the HR arena.

There are things to gain from HR Leadership Group that you won’t get in the office. Our network and programs are very structured and timely to current HR issues.
