    Q: How can membership in a local chapter help me?
    A: By joining a local SHRM-affiliated chapter, you'll gain access to:

    • HR professionals and companies in the community
    • Local professional development opportunities
    • Up-to-date information on legislation
    • HR directors, managers, generalists and specialists who are glad to share information
    • Relationships and contacts with other local companies
    • The opportunity to obtain SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP and/or PHR/SPHR/GPHR recertification credits
    • Leadership skills opportunities

    Q: As a SHRM member, am I automatically a member of a local chapter?
    A: No. SHRM membership is separate from membership in a local chapter. Each chapter has its own membership application process and dues structure.

    Q: As a member of my local chapter, am I automatically a SHRM member?
    A: No. Please see the previous answer. To join SHRM, please visit

    Q: When I join a local chapter, should I notify SHRM?
    A: Yes. Upon membership in your local chapter, please contact SHRM to update your member record. This is important because your local chapter receives financial support from SHRM based on your membership.

    Q: Can I still join UCHRA if I am an unemployed or laid off HR Professional?
    A: Yes, of course! In fact, that is probably the best possible place for you to be if you are unemployed or under-employed. Being active in UCHRA allows you to network with other HR professionals, learn about job openings, and stay current with HR trends that are emerging. Being a part of a local SHRM Chapter also shows you are committed to continuing education, as many of UCHRA's sessions are approved for the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) credit.
