Membership in a Local Chapter
SHRM Membership in a Local Chapter
What's In It For Me?


Membership in a SHRM-affiliated chapter means access to a local network of HR professionals, as well as professional development programs.

Click here to learn how membership in a local SHRM chapter can help you.




Joining a local chapter is easy.


Use our Locate a Chapter tool or check our list of chapters and go to their website.
Each chapter will have information on how to join on their website.

Some will have an online membership tool and others will have a paper form to fill out and turn in.

Check out their Board of Directors. Most chapters will have a Membership Director who can assist you with any questions.

If they do not have a Membership contact, you should feel free to contact anyone on their board to assist you.

You can join several chapters if you want to, however, you can only designate one chapter as your home chapter.

You can “affiliate” (name a home chapter) either by filling out a form on your local chapter’s site, asking the Membership director for an affiliation form, or by contacting SHRM National and alerting them of your home chapter.

VA SHRM Ranks #2 in Top Giving to SHRM Foundation
Virginia SHRM is proud to announce that in 2016 VA SHRM ranked #2 of all state councils in donations to the SHRM Foundation! That's an amazing effort that placed us ahead of many councils with significantly larger territories/chapters. A big kudos goes to NOVA SHRM. They were a 2016 Top 25 Chapter in donations to the SHRM Foundation. Thank you to all who generously gave to support the SHRM Foundation. The SHRM Foundation is a values-based charity organization that champions workforce and workplace transformation and inspires HR professionals to make it happen.

Legislative Update: VA House Bill 1445 Dies in Committee
Thank you to those of you who contacted your Virginia Representative to share the impact of Virginia HB1445 on your employer. Luckily for VA employers, this bill died in committee... this time.

This bill would have restricted an employer’s right to pay wages via pre-paid pay card without first obtaining employee consent. For employers who have intentionally moved away from the use of live pay checks to the use of pay cards as an alternative to direct deposit, this bill could have considerable consequences.

A big thanks to our partners at the VA Chamber for gathering employer support to let our Representatives know how employers could be impacted by HB1445. If you happen to chat with your Representatives in the future, it still wouldn't hurt to mention how such a bill could possibly negatively impact your employer.
