Train the Trainer

Please join us on Saturday, December 10, 2016 for a “Train the Trainer” Strategic Planning & Budgeting Workshop that will allow you to advance your personal and professional skills in strategic planning and budgeting.  You will walk away with skills and tools that you can take back to your office.  This workshop is open to all AHRMA members, but attendance will be capped at 32 participants.

The objective of this workshop is to discuss how HR professionals can execute a strategic plan to match their business goals; and, how to align their budget planning with their strategic plan.


This workshop will focus on the business model strategic planning process that uses information from the organization’s mission and goals (based on SWOT analysis) to determine the necessary strategies, objectives, action items, and specific responsibilities required to achieve the business goals, as well as a way to chart progress towards those goals.


The workshop participants will complete the worksheets included in the training to develop a mission statement and strategic plan, and to review/revise their organization’s bylaws in accordance with the newly developed strategic goals. We will discuss the importance of having a committee responsible for ensuring that the organization stays within the plan and budget, or understands the value of making mid-course corrections. Participants will also learn various group facilitation techniques that they can utilize in the workplace.


The workshop has been approved for 6.5 hours of Business/Strategic credits from HRCI and 6.75 PDC hours from SHRM.


The cost of the all-day workshop is only $25 which will cover the facility, light breakfast and lunch goodies, and printed handouts.  (That means you can receive the much in demand Business/Strategic credits for a mere $3.70/credit hour).

Develop future leaders within the human resource profession.




Stepping Stones to Enhanced Leadership is a creative and innovative program designed, developed, and implemented to meet the professional development needs of individual members of the Austin Human Resource Management Association (AHRMA), provide recertification credits for both HR Certification Institute (HRCI) as well as the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), create a pipeline of emerging leaders for AHRMA’s Board of Directors succession planning, and meet employers needs for improvement of employee engagement, retention, and professional development.



The Stepping Stones to Enhanced Leadership program 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 nine (4-hour) modules which are certified for HRCI & SHRM credits.
