Welcome to Northern Colorado Human Resources Association (NoCoHRA)!


NoCoHRA Awarded

For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

SHRM recently awarded Northern Colorado Human Resources Association (NoCoHRA) its prestigious EXCEL Gold Award for the chapter’s accomplishments in 2023.

The EXCEL award is given to state councils and chapters to recognize major accomplishments, strategic activities, and tactical initiatives that elevate the profession of human resources. 

“SHRM’s impact on the world of work is due to the dedication and efforts of our chapters and state councils like NoCoHRA. “The Gold EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by NoCoHRA - it’s also recognition of their focus and determination to cause the effect to make great workplaces”, said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president, and chief executive officer of SHRM.  “Their HR leadership is exemplary.”

NoCoHRA is being recognized for embarking on the Dual Membership Release (DMR) journey, in which it will become a 100% Chapter (all NoCoHRA members will be SHRM members) within two years. NoCoHRA expects that the stronger partnership with SHRM will enhance its member value. Additionally, the Chapter advanced the HR Profession by holding its first Legislative Update mini-conference in October. NoCoHRA also sponsored the Rocky Mountain Case Competition and co-organized the 2023 COSHRM Student Conference. Both of these events bolstered NoCoHRA’s partnership with college students and emerging professionals, enhancing both the SHRM community and the HR profession.
