Who We Are
The Manchester Area Human Resources Association was originally formed in 1954 by a small group of local professionals who were interested in sharing information and experiences about personnel issues. MAHRA was affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Management in 1973. MAHRA currently maintains a membership of over 170 members representing a diverse range of professionals working in the interests of human resource management for private and public organizations of all types and sizes, as well as education and various service firms that contribute to the needs and goals of the profession.
To satisfy this professional diversity, and as a means of responding to the ever-changing demands of the field, the chapter serves its members by conducting monthly program meetings, seminars, professional accreditation opportunities, and social events. In addition, MAHRA provides information on legal and legislative matters and representation to state and national human resources associations.
