As a Texas not-for-profit organization with a membership structure, the DallasHR membership participates in major corporate decisions. Specifically, members have the exclusive right to elect officers and directors and to amend the bylaws. Like any corporation, a not-for-profit has a board of directors to make important policy decisions, officers to oversee and manage the day-to-day operations of the organization and often employees to do the work.
The Dallas Human Resource Management Association, Inc. is governed by a Board of Trustees, Executive Committee, staff and two Boards of Directors for the two divisions; the Association and the Conference.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall viability of the organization and the oversight of the corporate business affairs of DHRMA, Inc. This Board focuses on long-term strategic activities and the continuity of leadership and direction.
The Executive Committee oversees the management and business affairs of the Corporation. This Board is responsible for the oversight of the activities of the two divisions of the organization, DallasHR and The HRSouthwest Conference.
The two divisions are each managed by a Board of Directors who are focused on the current year's business activities.
The DallasHR bylaws
