We are listening to you, our Members.

You have provided feedback that you would prefer to receive soft copies of presentations instead of printed materials, in order to be mindful of the environment and to reduce our carbon footprint.  Therefore, beginning in 2019, HRPA Professional Development will, whenever possible, provide a soft copy of the participant course material.  We will not produce printed materials unless there is reason to do so (e.g. program format).

If you absolutely need a hard copy, we request that you print and bring it with you.  Hard copies will not be available on site.

Thank you for your understanding.
