Chapter Affiliation Requirements 

 

 

For 100% chapters (chapters requiring SHRM membership to belong to the local chapter):

ALL chapter members MUST be SHRM members in good standing. Non-SHRM member categories are not permitted. 100% chapters are subject to the same minimum membership requirements as stated below for non-100% chapters, depending on the date of the chapter’s affiliation with SHRM.

Chapters that do not have 100% SHRM membership will not be considered 100% chapters, and will not receive the benefits of being a 100% chapter.


For non-100% chapters affiliated with SHRM PRIOR TO January 1, 2004:

At least ten (10) chapter members or thirty percent (30%) of its active membership, whichever is GREATER, must be active SHRM members

Chapters that fall below 10 SHRM members or below 30% SHRM membership will be at risk of losing their SHRM affiliation.


For non-100% chapters affiliated with SHRM ON OR AFTER January 1, 2004:

At least twenty-five (25) chapter members or fifty-one percent (51%) of its membership, whichever is GREATER, must be SHRM members.

Chapters that fall below 25 SHRM members or below 51% SHRM membership will be at risk of losing their SHRM affiliation.

For non-100% chapters affiliating with SHRM ON OR AFTER January 1, 2012:

At least twenty-five (25) of its members AND a minimum of fifty-one percent (51%) of its membership must be SHRM members.

Chapters that fall below 25 members and below 51% of its SHRM membership will be at risk of losing their SHRM affiliation.

Effective January 1, 2017
