SHRM Affiliation

We are proud to be a 100% Affiliate Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). This means that every member of Raleigh Metro is also a member of SHRM. This distinction shows our commitment to the HR profession and allows our chapter to offer and have access to enhanced programs and services. If you are not already a member of SHRM, please apply for membership using their online application. Please be sure to designate Raleigh Metro SHRM (chapter #0132, formerly Raleigh-Wake HRMA) as your primary chapter with SHRM. If you have not designated us as your primary chapter, but you are interested in doing so, you may complete the SHRM Primary Chapter Designation form online. We appreciate your valuable support!
