Network forums

AHRI Networks are groups of HR professionals that share your interests!

Networks are run by AHRI members that volunteer their time and expertise to expand the scope of knowledge in particular HR topics.

Connect with like-minded HR professionals at local and specialist networking forums to grow your knowledge and professional network.

AHRI Networks run a mix of local in-person events and online events to provide you with the chance to connect with your HR community.

How do they work:

Each network is led by a convenor whose role is to work closely with AHRI to organise a range of activities including network forums. The activities of AHRI network forums can vary, and depend on each group’s interests. Typically AHRI Networks plan and host events and discussion forums, and contribute to the content of AHRI’s state and national conferences.


Below is the list of scheduled network forums. For all of AHRI’s upcoming events view the events calendar.

Network Forums Frequently Asked Questions

AHRI Network forums are another avenue for AHRI members to earn CPD points. AHRI members receive CPD points (per 1 hour) for Network forums that include a speaker or discussion on a HR topic. Networking events usually do not attract CPD points.

AHRI members who pre-register and attend an In-person Network forum will have their CPD record updated automatically when they check-in with the QR Code. Members who pre-register and attend an Online Network forum will have their CPD record updated automatically after the event.

Many online forums are recorded and made available to people who registered for the event, usually the following day. 

Online forums are scheduled regularly. The timing for each online forum is dependent on the availability of the speakers, and the state or Territory hosting the event. Please check on the registration page the time zone for individual events.

Network Forums: All AHRI members can attend Network Forums free-of charge. Non-members who attend in-person Network Forums in regional areas can also attend for free. Non-members will be charged a fee to attend all online forums and in-person forums held in metropolitan area (excluding Darwin & Hobart).  All prices include GST. For cancellations see full event terms and conditions.

Free of Charge registrations: We will simply record your cancellation.

Paid Network forum registrations: Change of mind cancellations prior to a paid Network Forum may incur an administration fee. There are no refunds for change of mind cancellations after a paid Network forum. If your cancellation (for an in-person event/course) is in relation to illness, covid-19 symptoms, close proximity, isolation/quarantine or you recently attended an exposure site, a credit will be provided for a future AHRI course/event. This credit expires 12 months after credit issued or it can be refunded to you.

Notification: We will use reasonable endeavours to notify registrants of a cancellation, variation, rescheduling, or postponement by sending an email to the address provided to us by the registrant. Registration fees for paid Network forums registrations cancelled by us will be fully refunded.

Sole remedy: To the extent permitted by law, any refund or credit issued will be your sole remedy for a postponement or cancellation of an event/course, and AHRI will have no further liability to you in respect of any cancellation, variation, rescheduling or postponement for any reason.  Any credits issued for postponed or cancelled events/courses that are not used within 12 months of the originally scheduled date of the postponed/cancelled course or event will be forfeited.
