Professional Development

Monthly Programs

WATRA offers engaging programs most months of the year in a wide variety of topics.  These programs are free to our members and $45 for non-members.  We encourage you to come and bring your co-workers to learn about areas you are actively working in or areas you are less familiar with.  Just listen to the conversation, or engage with our presenters to add depth to the program.

Discounted World at Work Fees

WATRA members get discounts on a number of World at Work fees including courses, course materials, and surveys.     

Local in-person (discounted) World at Work Courses

WATRA sponsors World at Work Courses locally in partnership with our members.  This gives you and your peers, staff or team the opportunity to participate in an in-person World at Work Certification course at a discount, and without travel or hotel costs.  We vary the topics and welcome feedback on the courses to be offered each year.

Networking Opportunities

WATRA encourages you to come to meetings early to enjoy the light breakfast and engage with our presenters and the other members in attendance.  Building your brand starts with active participation and making key connections.  In addition to our regular meetings, we sponsor social events and encourage you to volunteer with or on the board.  Working with knowledgeable professionals and learning from them builds your credibility and network and opens doors to new possibilities for your future.
