Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information


March 30, 2020

Dallas HR Management Association continues to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to provide updates here. 

As we adjust to our “new normal”, we continue to follow statements from the CDC and local authorities. Through the end of April, we are following current guidance for large events and mass gatherings. We have rescheduled in-person Networking Events for later in the year and have converted face-to-face Education Events to webinars where applicable. Our online Event Calendar reflects the most current schedule. 

During this unprecedented time, we are committed to support the HR community more than ever!  Now – June 1, any local human resource practitioner can register for temporary access to our website and to important resources traditionally available to DallasHR Chapter Members only.  Access timely COVID-19 webinars and resources presented by our members and your peers. Get answers to your questions reading through hundreds of Q&A’s already posted or post one of your own in the online community – HRConnect. And, we’re giving you access to five (5) complimentary education sessions from our Online Learning Center. Continue earning recertification credits and/or find out more about a topic of interest. The Online Learning Center has hundreds of educational sessions recorded from The 2018 and 2019 HRSouthwest Conference.  

As of now, The 2020 HRSouthwest Conference is still scheduled to occur in Fort Worth, this October. We have to believe we will be in a better place in six (6) months but rest assured we are continuing to monitor the CDC’s recommendations and will continue to keep you updated here on the website. 

We understand this is a trying time. Rest assured we are doing what we can to ensure a safe environment for our members and guests.
