Dear Members & Prospective Members, 

Welcome to the Wichita Chapter of SHRM. As an affiliate chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Wichita SHRM has over 400 members working in HR related positions throughout the community. The Chapter’s primary objective is to provide professional development, education, networking and community involvement to human resource professionals in the Wichita metro area. 


Wichita SHRM's monthly chapter meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Abode Venue.  




Please check the website calendar for updates, programs and other chapter events.

If you are a current chapter member, I thank you.  If you are not, consider this my personal invitation to you to check out the chapter to learn more about the benefits of both a local and national membership. 

As a preferred provider of both HRCI and SHRM recertification credits, Wichita SHRM will partner with you to help maintain your certification(s) at a very affordable price. The hosted events are a great way to network with other HR professionals and business leaders in the community. Many of the events are sponsored by entities with products and services for the HR professional, making it a great place to learn what is new.

I am honored to serve as the 2017 Chapter President and along with the Chapter Board look forward to serving you throughout 2017.

If you have any questions or need help to get involved in the chapter please feel free to contact me.
