Member Network and Communications Resources

    BAHREC LinkedIn Group


    One of the fundamental goals of BAHREC has been to provide networking opportunities for HR professionals. Our events, programs, mixers, roundtables, and mentorship opportunities provide the foundation for those networking opportunities. We have integrated some online tools to facilitate networking between members – that supplement our live events, information sharing and informal networking within the group. To that extent, we have established a BAHREC LinkedIn Group as a secure online networking tool for you, our BAHREC members.
