HRA has performed hundreds of keynote, topical and technical presentations for associations and companies.

Here is an overview of HRA's presentation programs.

HRA's keynote speaker is William J. Cook. William ("Bill") Cook has been an HR professional for over 32 years. He has taught courses on human resources and labor relations at two universities and one college, and has written over 120 articles on human resources for newspapers and trade journals.

Bill was under contract to the Department of Labor for over eight years establishing recruiting and training programs for minorities and women across the United States. His work included the creation, development and monitoring of successful programs for the Navajo Indian nation, the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training and organizations in every state in the union.

Bill is well know in the association world. He is a regular speaker for many associations creating custom designed presentations and seminars each year. His keynote presentation on "Workforce 2000, What's Next?" compares the workforce of the 1950s, '80s and today with the emerging workforce of the next 10 years they way we were, the way we are and the way we are going to be. The valuable and fascinating presentation explains the impact these changes are already causing in the work place and where it's all going with the newly emerging "Generation X." What will all of this mean to employers over the next 10 years. "Workforce 2000, What's Next" is a keynote presentation that is updated continuously to reflect accurately the impact of our ever-changing workforce.
