Stepping Stones to Enhanced Leadership was established in 2008 as a tool for developing AHRMA leaders and as a reward to our volunteers and their employers for the hours of service they dedicate to the human resource profession.
The program includes a Cohort styled program with nine, 4-hour modules, which are pre-certified through HRCI/SHRM for up to 36 hours of recertification credit. This is a creative and innovative program designed, developed, and implemented to meet the professional development needs of today’s HR professionals.
Students of the program include AHRMA members and non-members designed to provide opportunities for recertification credit, create a pipeline of emerging leaders for AHRMA’s Board of Directors, and to meet employers needs for improvement of employee engagement, retention, and professional development.

What are participants saying about Stepping Stones to Enhanced Leadership?
I am a recent 2019 graduate of the Stepping Stones Program with AHRMA. This program has definitely made an impact on me personally and professionally. I was able to connect with remarkable HR professionals who were by my side throughout the program and the speakers were phenomenal. Through this program, it has helped me grow within my current role as an HR Director to become more strategic, a thought leader, credible activist, and more based off of the material that was delivered throughout the program. I have more confidence in myself now more than ever and for that I am truly grateful for my time spent through this program. I encourage every HR professional to join. This will open your eyes and provide you with the tools needed to improve in any area you are seeking to improve. - Patricia Drake, 2019 SS Graduate
Starting the Stepping Stones Leadership Program through AHRMA was a big step out of my comfort level, I wasn’t sure what to expect and was a little nervous about the process all together. Through the different modules, I learned about myself, grew both professionally and personally in my relationships with many different people with different personalities, backgrounds, and ages. My manager has noticed my growth and even my communication and understanding with multiple generations has improved. I made great contacts and friends during my time with The Stepping Stones Leadership Program. - Heather Miller, 2019 SS Graduate
I got actionable information at every session, learned a ton about myself, and built a new network of amazing HR professionals. I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone. – Erin Aubry
