Recognition of SHRM Chapters and State Councils

With the support from SHRM chapters, state councils, and volunteer leaders, the SHRM Foundation is able to fulfill our mission to champion workforce and workplace transformation. THANK YOU!

To say thanks to chapters, councils, and volunteer leaders who go above-and-beyond, the SHRM Foundation has created the following recognition awards. As a charity, the SHRM Foundation's work is only possible through the generosity of passionate individuals, organizations, and SHRM chapters and state councils.
