“Volunteering with Tri-State HRMA for over 30 years has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my career. I have gained so much in return!”

Monica R. McClintock
MAOLD, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, Adjunct Professor, Rowan University, Member since 1985

“We’re an open-hearted group of people who want to form relationships for the long-run. Since joining Tri-State, I’ve gotten connected to several people who’ve given me unbiased and extremely valuable advice and support when I was making a career shift.”

Susan Jarnagin
Sr. Benefits Consultant, Gallagher, Member Since 2011

“I’ve been a member for more than 30 years and I can tell you that we’re an inclusive, funny group of people. Tri-State HRMA is more than just professional development — it’s personal, as well. You really get to network and become friends with so many outstanding people.”

Bob Witkoski
SPHR, SHRM-SCP, Director, Human Resources, The Michaels Organization, Member since 1985

“Little did I know that in addition to forming partnerships and strong networks, I would also develop friendships lasting me a lifetime. I love Tri- State HRMA because it is the only group that has figured out how to grow and learn together professionally, while having fun at the same time. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to be a part of and grow with.”
