Why Wichita SHRM?

The answer to that is simple. We offer a plethora of opportunities to network and expand your knowledge of our industry and we provide access to a full array of resources to meet all of your HR needs.


For nearly 60 years, Wichita SHRM has provided a local forum to address the many issues HR professionals tackle daily. As an affiliate chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), we are the largest SHRM-affiliated chapter in Kansas with approximately 400 members. Our Chapter was one of the first to charter, and we’ve been proudly serving the area since 1960!


Our mission is straight-forward: To serve the needs of the HR professional, to advance the HR profession, and to enhance the effectiveness of our members as business partners. We exist to ensure our members have the tools and resources to be valued, contributing leaders in their employment. We do this by emphasizing our Chapter goals and objectives.

How do I get more involved with Wichita SHRM?

We love this question! We have an amazing board of volunteers who lead the various dynamic areas of our organization – but they can’t do it alone. Without the help of additional volunteers we would likely fall flat. Whether you are interested in serving on the board, serving on a committee, or assisting with a specific event, we would love to have your participation! Please contact
