Our Vision and Mission
To be the leading authority in Northwest Ohio for providing expertise and consultation to our members [and communities] on current and emerging trends in human resources.
The local HR association that exists to develop and serve the HR professional and contribute to the success of the organizations and communities in which they work and live. NOHRA provides opportunities for professional development, networking, and certification to enhance the effectiveness of HR professionals and advance the practice of human resources.
NOHRA was organized in 1918 by a group of employment managers who felt the need for a forum to discuss mutual professional challenges. Fifty-four years later the association became affiliated with SHRM (formerly known as ASPA) in 1972. During all this time, the traditions of our founding members have prevailed. We strive to build a sound and effective association to promote human resources in the companies and communities of our members and to build upon mutual interests and desires.
