NAAAHR-State of Michigan

The mission of the Detroit Chapter of the National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR – pronounced “N-Triple A-HR”) is to serve as a vehicle and a voice for issues that impact the lives of our practitioners and provide leadership in areas where solutions seem difficult to achieve. The fulfillment of our mission will be realized by focusing on accomplishing goals that;

1. Address local, state and national issues of specific importance to our members
2. Provide a point of entry for those who wish to join the Human Resources profession
3. Disseminate academic, professional and practitioner information to supplement NAAAHR members knowledge base
4. Research and distribute best practices from across the profession
5. Create networking opportunities that strengthen professional connections
6. Focus on the continuing development of member leadership skills

It is with this sense of purpose that the Detroit Chapter NAAAHR is positioned as a venue for bringing together the collective minds and talents of our members and friends and provides a forum for member advancement.
