Our association holds lunch meetings or events each month except June (Join us for our June Golf Outing instead!), July, and August. Meetings and activities are publicized to members each month. Meetings are held at the Quality Inn and Suites on Leffel Lane in Springfield, Ohio. Lunch will be served at 11:30am and the featured speaker will begin at noon on the second Thursday of each month. Membership fees include lunch expenses.
Not a member? Join us as a guest and pay at the door. We also offer special discounted rates for students. During lunch, guest speakers present timely and informative topics. The Chapter also holds social events such as a year-end holiday party and of course, our summer golf outing. Members are encouraged to participate on committees, which include membership, program, executive, or the event committee.
Membership in SHRMA is very beneficial in many aspects. We strive to provide the most up-to-date and applicable information to our membership through our newsletter and our website. Our membership luncheon meetings cover on-trend topics that our members and guests can take back to their workplace and apply to their jobs. SHRMA also provides the opportunity for our members to attend seminars and workshops at a discounted rate. Membership in SHRMA affords you the opportunity to associate and network with 80 to 100 of the area's HR professionals.
Would you like to get more involved in SHRMA? We would love to have you join us!! Volunteer positions exist on the golf committee, or you could run for a board position. Don't have that kind of time to donate? How about joining a committee? Assistance is needed with the web site, community relations, and help is always welcome with one of the student chapters. Your help would be appreciated! Are you PHR/SPHR certified? Board positions earn you recertification credits! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Lehan Peters, SHRMA President.
Joining your local SHRM chapter is a great way to network with other HR professionals like yourself. What is networking and why is it important? In general, the term network can refer to any interconnected group or system. More specifically, a network is any method of sharing information between two systems (human or mechanical) (source: Wikipedia). Networking through SHRMA is developing relationships with others in the HR field. These relationships will help support you as an individual within your company. You will have the opportunity to share your experiences, discuss ideas, ask questions, and share opinions and views with other HR professionals. The knowledge you obtain and the resources you build can be used when developing and implementing HR services at your organization throughout the year.
