Locally Relevant. Nationally Informed. Double the expertise with Dual Membership.
PROVIDENCE, RI, January 10, 2023 – With a go-live date of January 17, 2023, the Rhode Island Society for Human Resource Management (RI SHRM) is excited to announce an alliance with the National Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in the strategic initiative known as Dual Membership. As an award-winning local chapter of SHRM with a rich tradition of being the local go-to group for all things Human Resources, Legislative, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion related, Dual Membership will offer further opportunities to connect, collaborate, learn, and grow.
Becoming a 100% chapter, RI SHRM will have access to nationally recognized content, publications, and speakers. It will allow members to maximize their access to the SHRM Competency Model to facilitate the advancement of career paths or further knowledge as a student or business professional. Alignment with National SHRM lends credibility and strength in numbers increasing the effectiveness when representing HR professionals with grassroots efforts at all levels.
RI SHRM empowers members by providing personal and professional development, invaluable networking opportunities, the exchange of diverse knowledge and experience, state and federal legal updates, and opportunities to attend conferences.
After January 17, 2023, RI SHRM strongly encourages members to join National SHRM, i.e., Dual Membership to take advantage of all the benefits of both organizations. For current members of RI SHRM, your membership fee will be waived until your national membership renews. Anyone opting to not become a Dual Member may still participate in RI SHRM programming by pre-registering and paying a fee for each meeting and event they wish to attend.
