Maryland Chapters

Have you considered joining a local SHRM chapter? 

As an HR professional, you have the opportunity to apply for membership with a local chapter. As a member of a SHRM affiliated local chapter you will have access to a wealth of services and programs that can broaden your skills and make you more valuable to your organization.

SHRM Membership can provide you with LOTS of great benefits, including:

  • Exposure to other HR professionals and companies revealing how other organizations handle various human resource situations;
  • Access to a network of professionals and specialists providing HR information that might otherwise be difficult and/or expensive to obtain;

  • Availability of local professional development opportunities to improve YOUR abilities and skills;
  • Access to current best practices to make your organization more efficient, increase employee commitment, and help managers carry out business strategy;
  • Availability of up-to-date information on pending federal and state legislation that may impact your company’s operations;
  • Opportunity to develop leadership skills by volunteering in a leadership role in a local chapter; and
