HR Network

The HR Network is a unique opportunity for individuals supporting all functions of HR – Recruitment – Safety – Employee Relations – Compensation and Benefits – Compliance – Talent Development – to come together to listen, learn, network and build a professional community to advance our agencies performance.


“The HR Networking Meeting was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants. This is a one day meeting with focus on specific hot topics.  Short and sweet, it has a great format with engaging conversations and presenters.”

“Thank you for the HR Network event earlier this week. I found it helpful, as a Director also serving as the HR Officer, as the position is vacant there is so much to know. I enjoyed meeting new Head Start colleagues and learning from the presenters.”
