“I love what PIHRA provides to the HR community. Without the endless education, amazing networking, friendships, and opportunities to hone my leadership skills, I don’t think I would have been as successful as an HR director. I feel honored to be leading this worthwhile organization and giving back a small portion of what I was given.”
– Patti Sprinkle, PIHRA President
Serving the HR Community
In the age of the Novel Coronavirus, and beyond, PIHRA is here to support you.
We’re so glad you’re here to learn how you can support PIHRA and help sustain the organization for the next generation.
Why We’re Here
We’re a small group that gets a LOT done for HR professionals.
For 75 years, PIHRA has facilitated crucial learning and relationships for the HR community. Originally founded in 1944 as the Personnel and Industrial Relations Association (PIRA) by a small group of Los Angeles personnel administrators, PIHRA has grown to serve seventeen professional chapters, nine student chapters and three specialty groups, in addition to our annual conference which serves 3,000 HR professionals from all over California, the United States, and the world.
You’re what keeps us going, today and tomorrow. It’s our goal to make sure no one in HR goes without the resources they need to succeed in the face of these unforeseen business and workforce challenges. It’s why we opened up our membership benefits to so many and why we’re just an email or call away if you need help. It’s also why we hope to continue to serve your HR career as well as future generations of HR practitioners.
If PIHRA has helped you in your HR career, or you believe in supporting HR as much as we do, please contribute to help sustain PIHRA. Even a small amount will make a significant difference for us.
These are just a few of the benefits and services we provide to PIHRA members and All Access Pass holders to help them overcome any business or workforce challenges.

Thank You HR
Let’s not forget the impact of simple gestures as well. It’s important that we recognize these hard working individuals who don’t often get credit for their contributions.
If you know someone who works in HR, send them a quick note of thanks, or tag them on social to let them know how much they are appreciated. #ThankYouHR
There are many ways to volunteer with PIHRA & hone your leadership skills.
