The SHRM Foundation is once again sponsoring the annual Advisor of the Year Award to be presented to a distinguished student chapter advisor in 2017. The award will recognize the outstanding service and leadership provided to student chapters by SHRM advisors.

The winning advisor will receive:

  • A commemorative plaque
  • $1,000 cash award

Members of the Foundation Board and College Relations Volunteers will judge award entries. Factors to be considered include:

  • Length of service to the student chapter.
  • Advisor's contribution to the development of student leaders.
  • Innovative programs or projects conducted by the chapter.

  • Consistency of chapter quality from year-to-year.
