About HRP

Houston Relocation Professionals (HRP) is an organization that has the purpose of educating fellow relocation and Human Resources professionals. As well as giving them networking opportunities. All of this helps, at the same time, improve the relocation and HR industries.

To supervise everything goes well and the mission of the organization is met, there is a Board of Directors. Everyone there works in something related to the mobility business, like real estate, mortgage, transportation, and more areas.

They also care about their community. That’s why they help by doing some donations to different charities through their Outreach Program.

They’ve actually donated to Candlelighters and Move for Hunger before. Some of these donations come from what they collect at some events. So there you go, attending their events is not only beneficial for you, but also your community.

On top of that, they also offer a scholarship to a high school senior. Of course, there are some requirements. Like the student has had to be relocated more than 50 miles and therefore, he/she had to change schools. They also need to have good grades.

Oh, and students that want to apply for it must fill an application. Honestly, it’s a great opportunity. So be on the lookout for when they announce the next scholarship.

If you like what HRP stands for, become a member! There’s the annual membership for Corporate Relocation Professionals and it’s free. And the annual membership for Service Providers that costs $125.

Of course, there are benefits of being a HRP member. Some are discounts for the HRP annual Spring and Fall educational seminar and the chance to be part of activities to support Candlelighters.
