The purpose of the HRPA’s Learning and Quality Assurance Committee (“the Committee”) is to advise the Association on the utility and value of a broad range of member professional development programming including, but not limited to, the HRPA Annual Conference, Executive events, Chapter events, Regional programs and general Professional Development opportunities by identifying, researching and recommending topics to educate HRPA’s members and students, and the broader business community and the public about the role of HR.
The Committee will review and recommend speakers based on the Associations pre-approved rubric. The Committee will execute, the Associations quality assurance framework in order to audit and set continuous improvement targets for all learning programs.
