PIHRA Chapters and Communities

What is a PIHRA Chapter?

PIHRA is comprised of 17 community based chapters and 3 specialty groups serving human resource professionals located in the Greater Los Angeles area including Orange County, Riverside County, Ventura County and San Bernardino County.  These chapters provide a local forum for members’ personal and professional development.  They provide leadership development opportunities by allowing members to volunteer on boards, participate in chapter decision making and make presentations.  These chapters are an excellent networking venue, and provide forums to learn about and discuss human resource management issues and advocacy from the local, state, and national perspective.

Each PIHRA chapter is managed by a tireless group of volunteer managers who coordinate educational and social events, and are passionate about building and serving the local HR community.   

PIHRA chapters tend to meet on a monthly basis.  Below are the general meeting times and venues (subject to change) for each location. Please click on each chapter's link for information such as volunteer officer contact information, event registration costs, sponsorship information, and more.

Specialty Groups

There are additional, non-geographic communities which offer great resources to PIHRA members. 

  • The purpose of the PIHRA Foundation is to advance workforce readiness through community service in the greater Southern California area.  Their board focuses on providing assistance to educate human resources professionals and new professionals entering the workforce.
  • Club PIHRA is a community of professionals with the objective of sharing promotions and knowledge relating to employee activities, discounts, events and wellness issues.
  • PIHRA Young Professionals engages, equips and encourages young professionals who are actively working in or are interested in Human Resources.
