About Us

    The East Central Indiana Human Resources Association (ECIHRA) offers the opportunity to interact with Human Resource peers through personal and professional growth opportunities. Our mission is:

    • To provide members of the Human Resource profession with an environment where professional development can flourish through networking and educational opportunities, 
    • To be a catalyst for innovative and effective human resource management, and
    • To serve as a link for our student chapter and as a resource to the greater East Central Indiana business community.

    We want to deliver quality services and promote professionalism through involvement in the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) at the local, state, and national levels.

    Monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month. Time and location of meetings varies. They are posted on the Events Calendar page of this site. Each meeting contains business of the Association, introduction of members, and a speaker presenting a program around a current HR issue. Program topics are generated based on a membership survey conducted annually.

    Some of our current goals are to co-sponsor at least one activity or program with Ball State Student SHRM Chapter, facilitating at least one informal networking or learning opportunity such as a half-day “Issues Roundtable,” and establishing a committee structure to involve more members with such issues as programming, membership, communication, and finance, etc. Visit their website at

    ECIHRA is proud to be a SHRM Preferred Provider!
