Upcoming events

Join fellow HR professionals at our monthly, AIM HR Roundtable.

Committee Purpose/Mission

AIM provides members with a strong voice on Beacon Hill. AIM identifies issues and works with members to address those public policy issues. Members are a key factor in shaping AIM’s public policy position and ultimately the Massachusetts HR-Labor Law policy landscape to encourage a positive business climate and greater business investment in the Commonwealth. AIM will draft legislation, public statements and actively lobby the issue wherever it goes in state government.
