Learning and Education Committee

The Learning and Education Committee assesses the needs of members by analyzing internal and external market research to identify those services and product opportunities that bring value to membership. The committee develops programs, products and services that support the ASHHRA strategic plan and works closely with ASHHRA staff to identify resources to design and implement them, providing members with a valuable professional development opportunity.
