From its inception in 2003, the Forum has been built on the volunteer efforts of HR professionals around the region. They have worked to produce podcasts, pull together job ads from newspapers, engaged in regional research, hosted radio programs, designed logos, worked with students, written blog posts and much more.
Our volunteers come with a serious commitment, and actually work under what we call “honor contracts” – signed documents that are not legally binding, but represent professional agreements built on a foundation of mutual integrity. They agree to get more out of the experience than they put in. For example, some measure it in terms of professional visibility, while others get a chance to practice new skills in a safe environment.
In the near future we hope offer internships, which will have a small stipend.
Interested in Being a Volunteer?
We generally have volunteer openings in two areas: the online community and our virtual conference which takes place in September each year. Use this contact page to indicate your interest.
The success of CaribHRForum is made possible by volunteers who freely give of their time for the benefit of the community. While it’s not possible to make a complete list of the hundreds who have assisted over the years, here is a partial list of some of earliest and most recent volunteers.
