SHRM Profile

The Virginia SHRM State Council represents over 14,000 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). Virginia SHRM State Council is a 501(c)(6), professional organization.

Founded in 1948, SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. The Society has more than 250,000 members and is the global voice of the profession.

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, technology, and workforce readiness.
