TN Personnel Management Association
Welcome to the TPMA Wild Apricot Membership Website
Welcome to the Tennessee Chapter of the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), better known as the Tennessee Personnel Management Association (TPMA) . Any person working in a professional capacity in local government or a quasi‑governmental agency is eligible for membership. This includes city, county and state governments, school boards, public hospitals, public utilities, elected officials, and other persons interested in public human resource administration. Student membership is available to full-time graduate or undergraduate students, or any person participating in a formal public service internship program sponsored by a recognized academic institution. Five key objectives drive our association in serving our members:
The board travels across the State to engage with the members, holding quarterly membership meetings in each of the three grand divisions, and rotating the annual conference among those divisions. We also host networking forums across the State, typically held during the lunch hour, to provide additional opportunities for networking, and exchanging information and best practices.
We encourage you to join TPMA and engage with other public sector human resource professionals in your area and across the State.
TPMA is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP recertification activities.
