Professional Development for MHRI Associates
As previously noted, MHRI associates still have access to the professional development fund that was set in place at the beginning of the 2017 fiscal year. Professional development funds support education activities that may not be covered under this new program, such as certifications, professional memberships or conference attendance. There are no changes to the professional development process for MHRI associates. To apply for these funds, you will still need to submit an application through MHRI Human Resources. You can find the application on the HR StarPort Forms page.
