Three ways to join

There are three ways to become a member of RMSHRM

  • Dual Membership. If you choose to designate RMSHRM as your local chapter within on your SHRM application, then your RMSHRM dues are FREE. Visit our  Dual Membership page to learn more. SHRM will notify us and we will either create a profile for you if you are new or if you were already a member of SHRM, then we will update your RMSHRM profile.
  • Member of SHRM but chooses not to designate RMSHRM as your local chapter. You will need to contact and we will invoice you for $50 for membership dues. After you pay the invoice a RMSHRM profile will be created for you or if you already were a member of RMSHRM, then your profile will be updated.
  • Student member: You will need to contact and we will create a student profile for you with that designation.

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, visit your MySHRM profile, choose Raleigh Metro SHRM under Chapter Association and continue to the cart to process your transaction.

*Remember, there is NO additional cost to join the Raleigh Metro SHRM chapter if you are a member of SHRM National!

We appreciate your valuable support!
