Volunteering at AHRI
Volunteer as an AHRI Councillor
AHRI State Councils provide a valuable contribution to AHRI as they give members the opportunity to help drive the development of the HR profession and influence AHRI's strategic direction.
Members who wish to serve as a member of a State Council do so in a voluntary capacity. All current AHRI professional members are eligible to run for council and must be elected in as part of AHRI's annual council elections - normally held in August of each year.
Volunteer as an AHRI Network Convener
AHRI Networks are groups of HR professionals that share your interests and reside in your regional area. Networks are run by AHRI members that volunteer their time and expertise to expand the scope of knowledge in a specific HR area of interest.
Each network is led by a convener whose role is to work closely with the AHRI National Office on a range of activities. AHRI Networks are important as they ensure there is a close link between AHRI and HR professionals across Australia.
The role of the network convener is to generate professional development activity within their network, such as coordinating network forums (events), maintaining a web profile, contributing to the AHRI body of knowledge and representing AHRI when interacting with members at network activities. Where possible, the convener will attend each forum and will have overall responsibility for managing the event onsite.
How to get involved with AHRI Networks
AHRI members interesting in joining an existing AHRI network or establishing a new network are required to express their interest in writing including their resume and the names of the supporting committee members (for existing network committee members) for review by the AHRI team, and the relevant AHRI State Council.
If successful, an induction process will follow with ongoing support from the AHRI Events Team and the State Council.
