Legislative Updates

    The Purpose of the Legislative Committee

    • Monitor and evaluate legislative, regulatory and legal action at the local, state and federal level that may have an impact on the management of human resources.
    • Inform members of current and relevant legislative information via monthly newsletter articles and provide legislative updates for at least one AVHRA programming event annually.
    • Build relationships with local elected officials and provide them with opportunities to address our members.

    To better serve the needs of the professional HR community and advance the profession of Human Resources, AVHRA would like your input. Please contact us to send us your ideas and suggestions about AVHRA’s Legislative priorities and/or initiatives.
