Accomplished Leaders Exchange


The Accomplished Leader Exchange (ALE) is not a presentation, it’s a conversation.

The exchange is not about recertification credits, it’s about peer-to-peer learning. It is not for your team, it is for you. ALE is an intimate, strategic, peer-to-peer dialogue with Senior HR Leaders who face similar challenges and who are driving the same strategic initiatives. As a leader in your profession you have a responsibility to share experience and knowledge that will define the future of Human Resources. This is your opportunity to give back and take pride in shaping the next generation of HR.

SHRM-Atlanta will be facilitating a quarterly series of invitation-only exchanges, catered exclusively to accomplished HR leaders. At ALE, qualified HR executives will meet with high-caliber, like minded peers to engage and gain unbiased advice from those who’ve faced and overcome similar challenges. If you’re interested in connecting with the Atlanta HR community to discuss targeted, relevant, and timely topics while developing a prestigious network of peers, this is the exchange you’ve been looking for.
