Managing through COVID-19

January 13, 2021

Dallas HR Management Association continues to monitor COVID and will provide updates here and in the online community - HRConnect.

As we adjust to our “new normal”, we continue to follow guidelines from state and local authorities. The Operations Board of Directors has made the decision to continue to hold all events virtually through March 31, 2021, and our online Event Calendar reflects the most current schedule. 

Regarding the 2021 HRSouthwest Conference (October 10-13), we are making plans for a "hybrid" event of in-person and virtual participation, depending on the status of the Fort Worth Convention Center and the permission of larger groups to gather.  I thank you for your patience as ewe work through plans and please feel free to send any questions you may have to [email protected]

DallasHR members continue to have access to timely webinars and resources presented by our members and your peers. Get answers to your questions by accessing hundreds of posts in the online community, HRConnect. Continue earning re-certification credits and find out more about a topic of interest in the Online Learning Center where you can find hundreds of educational sessions from the 2019 and 2020 HRSouthwest Conferences.  

We continue to find ways to connect and engage our members and provide quality education for the HR Community.  Rest assured we are doing what we can to create a safe environment for our members and guests.
