Benefits of Membership

Professional Development. We are committed to continually developing our members and one of the best ways we do this is by hosting monthly membership meetings. Outside speakers give insight to HR issues and conferences, seminars and workshops provide greater in-depth knowledge and understanding of HR functions. Not only is the information you learn invaluable, you can also use it for re-certification credits!

Legislative and Legal Updates. As HR professionals we know how important it is to stay on top of changes and updates on the laws that regulate us. As part of our service to our members, we have a Board member dedicated to staying on top of this information and sharing it with the entire membership!

Certification and Recertification Assistance. PHR? SPHR? GPHR? Whether you have certification or not, we want to help! BHSHRM sponsors and coordinates an HRCI (Human Resources Certification Institute) study group to help you obtain your certification. In addition, we sponsor monthly meetings and programs so we can help you advance in your career through certification preparation and recertification credits!

Networking and Connecting. Get to know your fellow HR professionals. Social exposure to professionals in your field can prove invaluable. We provide the opportunity for you to network with others so that you can increase and share your knowledge!

Volunteer Opportunities. Involving our members in our local organization is a way that we can assist our members in their professional development as well as serve the profession and our community. We provide our members with opportunities to hone their leadership skills and play an active role in events for our organization as well as our communities!

Ongoing Information to Stay Current and Informed.We are the voice of HR in our community and we pride ourselves on providing our members with useful information via our communications emails and monthly newsletters.

Scholarships. As a local member you become eligible to apply for scholarships that are offered through SHRM. The funds can be used to further your own education, conduct research, or attend conferences. Each district within SHRM is eligible. All you have to do is apply!
