The Value of Membership
By Eve Sweeting
“HR is shaping a new world of work – one that relies on a strength of character and empathy unlike ever before. In an ever-shifting industry, SHRM membership and local chapter membership provides HR professionals the opportunity become experts on the most pressing topics facing workers today. More than 300,000 HR professionals rely on SHRM as their career partner and depend on us for support in their day-to-day roles.”
The HR Florida Membership Director has accountability for providing leadership to membership activities in the 28 local chapters, assuring that Chapter Membership Directors have access to the resources necessary to recruit and retain at-large SHRM members to chapters, local chapter members only to SHRM, and non-affiliated HR professionals to both organizations. As the membership director for the entire state, I work to coordinate and enhance the efforts of our SHRM-affiliated chapters so that we can provide the best possible resources to HR professionals through their memberships. We do this by sharing best practices, learning what our members want, and providing education and networking opportunities our members value.
Did you know that chapter membership and SHRM membership are better together? SHRM gives you access to valuable resources like compliance information, HR knowledge advisors, toolkits and templates and so much more! Your local chapter offers professional networking, continuing education, and peer connections. “Bottom line, becoming a member of SHRM and a local chapter is a winning combination.” Learn more by visiting our website hrflorida.org
