    Rock Springs, Wyoming, March 17, 2022 — The High Desert Human Resources Association (HDHRA) recently held an election of officers and installed new board members.  The association’s mission is to provide education to human resources leaders in the area and to be a resource for small organizations that do not have the ability to have a dedicated HR professional.  The 40+ members comprise individuals from along the I-80 corridor from Rawlins to Evanston and then up to Kemmerer and Pinedale. 

    HDHRA provides regular educational opportunities in the community. Association membership is FREE for all National SHRM members and education can be attended by members and non-members.  The next meeting will be held on April 27th at Western Wyoming Community College.  For more information or to register, visit their website at
