We often speak of the importance of students choosing a college that is the right fit. Professionals committed to their work do this, too.

I chose Illinois CUPA-HR, for instance, because I knew that every day when I came to the office, I would have access to professionals across the state who were willing to share their knowledge and experience that would assist me in my work-life.

Through their emphasis on excellence, service, and personal attention, Illinois CUPA-HR has created an environment where every HR professional can share their knowledge and experiences to provide our membership with the opportunities they need to become part of a professional association that is able to meet their needs.
