Benefits of Volunteering

Rewarding and Fun

Volunteering at HRPA is a rewarding and fun experience. Volunteers are critical to achieving the Associations mandate and its continued success.

Promoting and Protecting the Public Interest Through Governance and Regulation

With the expertise and involvement of volunteers we promote and protect the public interest by governing and regulating the practice, competence and professional conduct of members and firms of the Association.

We establish, maintain and develop standards of, qualification, practice, professional ethics, knowledge, skill and proficiency.

Volunteers also, create awareness of workplace issues, promote excellence in human resources management practices, and provide services that support the HR community.
