Welcome to 
Western Arkansas Human Resource Association

From the WAHRA President


The Western Arkansas Human Resource Association is among Arkansas' fastest-growing SHRM affiliates, and we're on a mission to empower our members in 2024.

Here's what we're aiming for:

  • Double our SHRM dual membership: We want to connect more HR professionals with the resources and network of SHRM.

  • Grow to 100 members: Building a strong local HR community benefits everyone.

  • Certify 10-15 SHRM professionals: Help advance your career and gain valuable HR credentials.

WAHRA's First Study Group Takes Off!

We're excited to kick off the year with a dedicated study group of five HR professionals. They're committed to earning their SHRM-CP certification and taking their skills to the next level.

Feeling Inspired? Join WAHRA!

As a WAHRA associate, I've experienced firsthand the welcoming spirit of SHRM, ARSHRM, and our local members. I'm incredibly grateful for the dedication of our volunteer leaders who drive our growth.

HR professionals are the backbone of every successful business. If you're looking for a boost of inspiration, check out SHRM CEO Johnny C. Taylor Jr. on social media. He's leading the charge to transform the future of work.
