Promising start for human resources institute group in Gladstone 

It looks like a promising start for a new Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) Gladstone Regional Networking Group being formed in the harbour city.

CQUniversity's Discipline Head for HRM Dr Roslyn Cameron, who is coordinating the group on behalf of AHRI, says there's been a positive response to the first network group meeting scheduled for Monday (April 30 from 11am-12.30pm at Gladstone Campus).

The Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) is the only national association in Australia representing human resource and people management professionals. AHRI represents more than 18,000 members.

Dr Cameron says AHRI currently has 22 networking groups across Australia which meet throughout the year to discuss topics of interest and to hear guest speakers.

"The Networks are formed by members for members. The networks enable members to develop their human resources interest areas through professional development networks," she says.
