IPMA-HR works for its members in Washington, advocating for rules and policies that benefit public sector HR practitioners.

Advocacy Work

When new policy issues arise, IPMA-HR staff and the membership determine the appropriate position for the association. Policy stances are published on our website and are made available in our publications. Many positions are long-standing.
