About PIHRA Riverside

Welcome to PIHRA Riverside!

PIHRA’s Riverside chapter serves members in the Riverside and San Bernardino county areas. We are committed to serving members by providing HR programs and networking opportunities to assist our members in explaining their HR experience and potential. Our programs expand across tactical, strategic, leadership and legal to provide our members the tools to advance in the Human Resources profession.

We invite you to attend our meetings which are held in an intimate setting in Riverside, CA. The best way to get to know the Riverside Chapter and its members is to attend one of our programs, networking events, mixers or our annual holiday celebration. We welcome you to join us. We start our meetings with a half-hour of networking, continue with announcements of current events, job openings and job seekers, and conclude with an hour-long presentation by a subject matter expert.
