We offer opportunities to heighten your awareness of current issues facing the HR profession and to build your professional network.
The Jacksonville Chapter of SHRM is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management; the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Founded in 1948 SHRM currently represents more than 250,000 individual members and has more than 580 affiliated chapters, members in more than 125 countries and over 6,000 volunteers.
SHRM Jacksonville was formed over fifty years ago at that time known as American Society of Personnel Administrators (ASPA). The name was changed in September of 1989 when the national organization changed its name to the Society for Human Resource Management.
