Can you believe we are rolling through 2021 and into 2022!
The CPHR Alberta team has been working hard to put together a professional development schedule based on the feedback from members this past fall. There is lots to look forward to in the new year, and we are excited to share with you that in 2022 we will maintain some of the regular monthly professional development sessions you have seen this past year while also adding in some new opportunities.
Members can look forward to the continuation of our noon-hour webinars and HR Roundtables while also having the opportunity to attend some new professional development offerings and more certificate programs.
To start the year off, we will be offering all of our professional development virtually; however, our goal is to start offering in-person chapter sessions when it is safe to do so.
Event registration for our January and February offerings will soon be available in the new CPHR Alberta portal. Until such time, please save the date for the following professional development and networking opportunities upcoming for 2022:
CPHR Alberta Chapter Chats were previously scheduled for January, however due to unforseen cicumstances we have had to cancel our Janauary dates. Chapter Chats will resume in April.
