Welcome to the Agassiz Valley Human Resources Association (AVHRA)

We are a 100% SHRM member chapter located in Fargo, ND serving the Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding areas. We are proud to be one of the local affiliated chapters of the Society for Human Resource Management, the largest human resource association in the country.

The purpose of AVHRA is to provide

  • a forum for the personal and professional development of our members,
  • an arena for the development of trust relationships where common problems can be discussed and deliberated,
  • an opportunity to focus on current human resource management issues of importance to our members, and
  • provide a focus for legislative attention to state and national human resource management issues.

Because of AVHRA’s concentration on strategic human resources as well as current local and national human resources issues membership is limited to 40 members.

AVHRA members must be have at least five years of human resources responsibilities requiring advanced knowledge, defined as work which is predominantly intellectual in character and which includes work requiring the consistent exercise of discretion and judgment.

Anyone meeting the eligiblity requirements are encouraged to apply for membership.
