This forum carries 10 PDHs (Professional Development Hours).

Through ACEC's Human Resource Forum and its accompanying online community, HR professionals are connected to a network of their peers in an informal, roundtable setting. Professionals share best practices, discuss problems and solutions, gain valuable insights into industry trends, and network with each other.

The HR Forum holds a day and a half long workshop structured for networking with peers in an interactive roundtable format. Facilitators develop a basic agenda with input from participants and address emerging trends and problem solving in the workplace.

Participants to the HR Forum will receive access to its online community and continue receiving valuable insight and information through member interaction.
