Become a NHRMA Partner…

For 81 years, the Northwest Human Resource Management Association (NHRMA) Annual
Conference & Tradeshow has been the gathering of choice for regional HR leaders who are

what nationally-known speakers have to say about today’s HR climate, and identifying
companies with innovative products and services that align with their organization’s current
or future needs.
More than 800 new and seasoned HR professionals attend the Annual Conference, and over
300 attendees participate in the two HR Academies each year; making this opportunity an
investment in the future. NHRMA represents frontline decision-makers from top companies
across the Northwest. The major benefit to NHRMA Partners is access to the most influential
practitioners from senior level to the next generation. These attendees work in all facets of
