In order to determine the future direction of the organization, it is necessary to understand its current position and the possible avenues through which it can pursue particular courses of action.

Our strategic plan is outlined in the form of a balanced scorecard and creates a focus on the most important aspects of our chapter:
Throughout the year the GCHRA Board is working towards providing the best services and resources for you. This website is just another example of how we plan to be the #1 source for HR and business professionals in the Greater Cincinnati area. As you go through the site you will find such resources as the *HR Net*, an information community where professionals exchange questions and answers; our Resources page, which highlights a wide range of other HR resources on the Internet; and our Professional Development section, including information on opportunities such as Certification Study Groups and HR How-To.
On behalf of the entire GCHRA Board, we hope that you find this site informative. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions! Please feel free to contact me or any of our executive board members or committee chair board members.
I hope to see you at an upcoming GCHRA event. If we have not met, I would love to connect!
