A community of HR leaders inspiring exceptional people strategies in bay area companies

Our Mission: As the premier bay area association for HR Executives and Senior HR Professionals, we create unique networking and professional development opportunities for strategic HR leaders.  At BAHREC we are "Shaping the Future of HR Leadership" in the Bay Area.

Our History:   The Bay Area Human Resource Executives Council, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, was founded in 1980 and at that time was known as ASPA South Bay Chapter.     

We later changed our name to BAHREC (Bay Area Human Resource Executives Council) to meet the  development needs of senior human resource professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, although our membership has grown and evolved to meet ever-changing business needs, we remain true to our original mission. 

If you are looking for top level CHRO, VP of HR or Senior HR networking opportunities and professional programming, BAHREC is your leader in the Bay Area.  Please follow the link below and to fill out our on-line application.  

If you have additional questions, please contact Linda Greco, VP of Membership at:
