Accomplished Leaders Exchange


The Accomplished Leader Exchange (ALE) is not a presentation, it’s a conversation.

The Accomplished Leader Exchange is not about recertification credits, it’s about peer-to-peer learning. It is not for your team, it is for YOU.

ALE is an intimate, strategic, peer-to-peer dialogue with Senior HR executives who face similar challenges and who are driving the same strategic initiatives. As a leader in your profession, you have a responsibility to share experience and knowledge that will define the future of Human Resources. This is your opportunity to give back to your peers and take pride in shaping the next generation of HR.

SHRM-Atlanta is facilitating a series of invitation-only exchanges, catered exclusively to accomplished HR practitioners. At ALE, qualified HR executives will meet with high-caliber, like minded peers to engage and gain unbiased advice from those who’ve faced and overcome similar challenges. If you’re interested in connecting with the Atlanta HR community to discuss targeted, relevant, and timely topics while developing a prestigious network of peers, this is the exchange you’ve been looking for.

Program Highlights:

  • Quarterly breakfast programs
  • Facilitated exchanges
  • Topics driven by participant input
  • Limited to 30 – 40 Senior level HR Practitioners

This group is one of the most valuable networks I rely on and I'm grateful to SHRM-Atlanta for creating it.”

Agnes Vivaldi Blumberg, SPHR-SCP, CCP| Director, Human Resources at Wise Foods Inc.
