2012 SHRM Membership Star Status

CAHRMASHRMStar2012CAHRMA is the recipient of the 2012 SHRM Membership Star Status.

On behalf of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), I want to congratulate your chapter for its achievement of attaining Membership Star status for 2012!

Even though our economy continues to be challenging, your chapter was able to overcome these challenges and still advance SHRM membership in 2012.  Many chapters experienced declining membership during the year, so your chapter’s ability to maintain or realize growth is to be highly commended.

As the economy continues to bounce back, we hope you will see continued growth in SHRM membership.  The membership growth goal remains at 3% for 2013.  Be sure to leverage the many resources available at, where you will also find the schedule for our Membership teleconferences.  We also hope that you will continue to share best practices with your peers.  In addition, your SHRM regional team is available to provide you information and guidance to support your membership initiatives.

Congratulations again on this achievement!  Keep up the great work, and thanks for all you do!

All the best!
