Mission & Vision
The Public Sector HR Association (PSHRA) is a recognized leader in the delivery of innovative solutions and practical resources for all levels of public sector HR professionals.
PSHRA’s mission is to empower public sector HR professionals to create better places to work for those who serve the public good.
PSHRA’s vision is Making Public Sector Work Better™.
PSHRA undertook a deliberate and collaborative process to envision the future, define direction, and clarify priorities. With the new 2023-2025 Strategic Plan as a foundation, PSHRA and its members will continue making public sector work better.
PSHRA traces its history to 1906 and the founding of the National Assembly of Civil Service Commissions during the administration of Theodore Roosevelt. The organization’s purpose remained consistent through changes of name through the 20th century. Most recently known as the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), PSHRA adopted its current brand on January 3, 2023.
PSHRA partners with numerous like-minded organizations to support our members and advance the profession. We are always open to exploring opportunities for strengthening our mission.
