Generally, HRAGNH members are strong supporters of our mission and very considerate of others. However, some members have felt inappropriately and/or uncomfortably solicited by certain other members. Therefore, we’ve found it necessary to establish guidelines for this type of activity.
Members are not to be openly solicited for business during chapter meetings. This means that:
Strict adherence to these guidelines will provide a comfortable, professional, and pleasant intimidation-free environment for all members.
The In-Transition Networking meeting has been established by the Human Resources Association of Greater New Haven (HRAGNH) and is facilitated by the Schegg Group.

Participants are welcome to join the HRAGNH chapter but are not required to do so to participate in these free monthly networking meetings. These meetings take place at the Schegg Group located at 1 Enterprise Drive, Suite 110 Shelton CT 06484. If you would like to be added to their mailing list, contact them at 203-225-0500.
