About Us

    Welcome to the Columbus Area Human Resource Association.  Whether you are new to the HR field or a seasoned professional, as your local affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, we are your local starting point for networking, information and professional development. Although the organization has been around for years, we became a SHRM affiliate in 2009. CAHRA offers monthly educational/informational meetings as well as other opportunities to develop contacts and relationships with like-minded HR professionals. We encourage you to check back frequently for updated information. We also encourage your involvement and suggestions about all of our activities, on the web and off. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting or event. Please join us as we continue to grow!
