SHRM Membership and Inland Empire SHRM Membership are the perfect combination.
Q: Can membership in a local chapter like Inland Empire SHRM help me?
A: Absolutely! By joining a local SHRM-affiliated chapter, you will gain access to:
- Create a network with the HR professionals and companies in the Inland Empire region.
- Tap into the knowledge of your peers to gain insight on how other local organizations handle various human resource situations, procedures, policies, etc.
- Learn about career advancement opportunities you may not otherwise know about.
- Take advantage of local professional development learning opportunities that support SHRM’s competency model, throughout every step of your career.
- Discover up-to-date information on pending federal and state legislation that may impact your company’s operations.
Professional Development Opportunities
- Leadership skills development opportunities include taking on a volunteer leadership role in your local chapter.
- You will have the opportunity to earn professional development credits (PDCs) for attending chapter programming approved for recertification credit.
Q: As a SHRM member, am I automatically a member of a local chapter?
A: No. SHRM membership is separate from membership in your local chapter. Each chapter has its own membership application process. To become a member of your local chapter, you will need to apply for membership directly with that particular chapter.
Q: How do I join Inland Empire SHRM?
A: Just complete the IE SHRM Membership Form below, designating IE SHRM as your primary chapter.
Q: Do I have to pay dues to be a member of Inland Empire SHRM?
A: No, IE SHRM members pay no dues with current SHRM membership. You only pay the member rate for events you attend.
Q: Does my IE SHRM membership automatically renew each year?
A: No, you will need to renew your primary designation with IE SHRM whenever you renew your SHRM membership.
Q: Can I belong to more than one SHRM chapter?
A: Yes. You can belong to as many chapters as you desire, but one will be considered your “primary chapter” and will receive financial support from SHRM.
Bottom line, becoming a member of SHRM and Inland Empire SHRM is a winning combination.
