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 for HRCI/SHRM 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.
