The Brookings Area Human Resource Association (BAHRA) is the joining of the business community in the City of Brookings and the surrounding area, for the purpose of helping its members become more effective on-the-job in the Human Resource field.
We meet monthly to exchange ideas on a wide range of subjects relation to the personnel/human resource field. As an owner, manager, supervisor, or administrator, your role is vitally important to your business and employees. Membership in BAHRA provides you with an opportunity to network with others in the business community in similar situations.
We meet once a month, bring in speakers, and join with others who can share common interests, questions, and ideas. We have officers who are elected at our November meeting. However, we keep the structure of the meetings very informal.
It is the mission of the Brookings Area Human Resource Association to:
- join the work force entities in the City of Brookings and its surrounding areas to enable members to gain access to quality educational experiences by engaging the membership in programs and discussions of issues pertaining to the human resource field, thus enabling each member to become more effective in the human resource field;
- provide a forum for area human resource and business professionals to network, exchanging ideas pertaining to human resource management within our business community;
- act as an effective liaison with the South Dakota State Council and the National SHRM programs and activities; and
- expand the influence of human resource professionals among the business community, the general public, and the State of South Dakota.
