While a SHRM member may belong to more than one affiliated chapter, only one chapter may be designated as that member's primary chapter. The member is free to change that designation as he/she wishes. Primary Chapter Designation Forms (CDFs) are signed directives from the member to SHRM authorizing SHRM to change his/her primary chapter deisgnation.
The CDF is completed by the member and FAXed to SHRM at the specified number. Upon receipt of the executed form, the member's primary chapter will be changed. To ensure changes are made during the appropriate month, submission deadlines are in place.
From January through November, the signed form must be received by the 5th business day prior to the end of the month to be processed in that month.
For the month of December, the signed form must be received by the 15th of the month to be processed by December 31st.
Forms received after the deadlines will be held for processing in the following month.
