"For over 20 years I have relied on PIHRA for professional support, camaraderie, SPHR recertification credits and leadership opportunities. I would not consider doing my Human Resources work as a Human Resources Operations Manager, Human Resources Director, Consultant or Educator without my PIHRA network."
