CPHR BC & Yukon roundtables are peer learning events where participants are both teachers and learners. Roundtables are a gathering of peers who share experiences and knowledge to build community. It is critical that you play an active role when you attend. You are part of the group to both hear and listen, but also share and converse. These roundtables are to enhance personal and professional growth. The focus is connecting with other members in conversation. Roundtables are not recorded for later viewing. Roundtables are not professional development webinars. Information about professional development webinars can be found here.
A volunteer roundtable host (or co-host) leads the roundtable and is supported by staff from the association. All roundtables are using Zoom.
Roundtable attendance is a benefit of membership. Members in good standing with CPHR BC & Yukon may register. In addition, participation in a roundtable is eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours for the CPHRTM designation.
Most roundtables are 90 minutes in length. For the full schedule visit our online calendar.
