The HRMAC Reads program is your opportunity to join fellow HR professionals to network and learn leadership skills from critically acclaimed authors. Sign up, grab the book from Amazon or your local library and get reading! We’ll meet up to get to know one another and then again to discuss the book. Wine and other light refreshments will be served for the book discussion. Imagine the unique perspectives on leadership, team-building and management you’ll learn not only from the books you read but the group of HR management peers you’ll meet.
