A letter from our President

Welcome Current and Prospective Members:


Welcome to the WNC Human Resource Association!

We are a vibrant group of 200 HR professionals in the WNC area, representing various industries across multiple business lines.  Our luncheons are typically held the second Wednesday of every month, at the Biltmore Park Hilton.  We also have special events such as our extended day legal program and a holiday event, both of which are held on beautiful Biltmore Estate!   New attendees to our programs will undoubtedly receive a warm welcome from the members of our Association. 

This year marks an important event for our Chapter.  We are delighted to be hosting “Lead Differently”, the 2016 NCSHRM State Conference, at the US Cellular Center from September 28-20.  In keeping with our conference theme, our chapter membership is innovative in our quest to illuminate the strategic value or our profession here in WNC.  We value the personal growth gained by interacting with our HR peers, in addition to the high quality programs.  In 2016, we expect to offer 16 professional continuing education credits through our regular Chapter programming.

 To help you better understand the spirit of our organization, I would like to share our Vision, Mission and Strategic Initiatives:

 WNCHRA Vision Statement
