SAHRA held its first mixer of at Kupros Craft House in Midtown Sacramento on February 8th. The event shined a light on SAHRA's Emerging Professionals, a

 newly developed group formed to serve as a forum for young HR professionals and those new to the HR industry

 in the Sacramento region. Nearly 50 attendees enjoyed bites and beverages, and participated in a team building activity, which included career related discussion items and a round of trivia. Groups were formed, each composed of HR professionals at different levels in their careers, in order to allow for advice sharing across generations. Fun was had, connections were made, and a thing or two was learned!

In November 2017, Preet Kuar, Vice President of Workforce Readiness along with Steve Haas, Human Resources Director at Disability Rights and Jenny Stanionis, Vice President of Miltenyi Biotec were invited by the President of Human Resources Management Association at Sacramento State University to be the guest speakers.


The HR students really enjoyed speaking with the professional  panel regarding different aspects of an HR career path.


SAHRA is committed to support emerging HR professionals as they enter their HR careers.


On August 22, 2017, SAHRA hosted HR Insights. The event provided a forum for emerging professionals to network with and learn from some of the region's leading HR practitioners. The second HR Insights event was held on May 10, 2018.
