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