Round Table Meetings

Recertification Credit Tracking 

Members who attend DallasHR Education Events that are approved for recertification credit hours can access a downloadable report detailing the Activity IDs and number of hours earned from SHRM and HRCI. Details are automatically added to your report two weeks after the event you attended.  This convenient way to track hours will help you keep the recertification process simple: track your progress, eliminate the need to save multiple certificates, and easily view all of your hours in one location. View your history on your DallasHR Profile under the "Recertification Credit History" tab.

Complimentary to members, HR Coffee Talk for HR Practitioners allows those working in an office a way to have meaningful conversation about issues impacting them today.  Designed to be a casual and comfortable conversation, attendees share their advice or seek feedback from other practitioners.

I have been a member of DallasHR since 2011 and grown tremendously in my professional development because of all that they have to offer. When I first entered the HR world the HR-101 workshop gave me a great foundation to build upon. Attending the monthly luncheons and HRSWC throughout the years continued to sharpen my skills and education, and the PHR study group prepared me for the exam. I cannot express how important attending the networking events has been in my life. It has not only opened up career opportunities, I have made lifelong friends, and have had the opportunity to volunteer and give back to the community and this awesome organization!
