Membership Qualifications

The MetroWest Human Resource Management Group (MWHRMA) is a volunteer driven organization that focuses on professional development and job enrichment for those working in human resources and management fields. The Association provides monthly educational and informative programs to help the busy professional learn and share ideas with their peers.

Additional opportunities exist to build professional and management skills, acquire reaccreditation hours towards PHR and SPHR designations, and establishing a strong network of human resource professionals by adding your talents and expertise to the needs of the Association by volunteering.

The Association welcomes anyone whose responsibilities encompass human resource functions; management, administration or consulting services and is willing to support the Association's mission and goals. While the Association is a strong forum to build effective networks of like professionals, we must also emphasize that active solicitation of our membership is not acceptable.

The HR Certification Institute is an internationally recognized certifying organization for the HR profession. More than 115,000 HR professionals worldwide maintain the HR Certification Institute's credentials as a mark of high professional distinction. Each year they must earn continuing education credits in order to retain their credentials.

One of the great benefits that MWHRMA offers members is the ability to receive HRCI credits for attending our monthly meetings. Prior to each seminar, MWHRMA submits the speaker and content information to HRCI. Then HRCI approves the program and authorizes credits based on the length of the meeting. We inform our members that the seminar is approved for credits. At each meeting, we provide a signed certificate listing the credit information that members can take home with them and submit directly to HRCI.
