HR Alliance Committees

Volunteering with HR Alliance is a great way to advance your leadership skills, make new contacts, and share your expertise with others, all while helping HR Alliance maintain its reputation as the best HR professional association in the Washington metropolitan area. Most Board members serve on one or more Committees, before being asked to join to the Board. You must be an active member of HR Alliance to serve on a Committee or serve on our Board of Directors. Below are a list of active Committees.
