SESHRM membership runs on the calendar year, January through December. Please note that chapter membership is separate and apart from national membership in SHRM. Our chapter has its own local membership process, application form, and due structure. You are not automatically enrolled as a chapter member when you enroll as a national member, nor are you automatically enrolled as a national member when you enroll as a chapter member. However, chapter membership is discounted for current national members and we encourage you to become members of both! For information regarding our Student Chapter please visit the Student Chapter page.
