We are excited to annouce that ND SHRM has received the EXCEL Bronze Award for 2013!

The award is part of the SHRM Affiliate Program for Excellence, which aligns individual states with SHRM.  The award recognizes a state’s accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that promote the human resources profession at the local level.

“This recognition is a distinct indication of the state council’s successful partnership with SHRM to serve the networking and professional development needs of human resource professionals and to the advancement of the human resources profession” said J. Robert Carr, senior vice president, membership, marketing & external affairs for SHRM.



NDSHRM is awarded Membership Superstar status for 2013!

Although our economy continues to be challenging, the SHRM chapters in our state were able to overcome these challenges and positively advance SHRM membership in 2013. Many states experienced declining membership during the year, so our state’s ability to maintain or realize growth in membership is outstanding!
