Council Profile
The Virginia SHRM State Council represents over 10,000 human resource professionals in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the District of Columbia. VA SHRM is the state affiliate for the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM).

Founded in 1948, SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. The Society has more 285,000 members in more than 165 countries. SHRM Affiliate Chapters provide additional programming and networking opportunities and are autonomous organizations, so it is not automatic that you will be a member of your local chapter when you join SHRM at the national level, and vice versa.  Click here for SHRM membership information  and  Find a Local Chapter.

Virginia SHRM is a 100% volunteer entity whose primary objective is to support the mission and initiatives of SHRM through education.

We coordinate professional development efforts, and serve as the conduit for communication among SHRM, chapters and at-large members.

We have 19 SHRM affiliated chapters in VA/DC, each providing programming and networking opportunities in the local area.

In addition, the state is divided into 6 geographic districts with district directors that provide support to the chapters in their region.

There are 16 student chapters which connect students attending Virginia/DC schools to SHRM.

Our Council consists of a president and officers that manage the daily operations of the Council.

There are also positions that represent the key areas of focus for the HR profession.

Some of these areas include certification, college relations, diversity, governmental affairs, membership, and technology.  For more information visit our Council Leadership.
