Are you ready to serve? Join our Board or support a Committee!

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” Martin Luther King

A life of significance is about serving those who need your gifts, your leadership, your purpose.” Kevin Hall

Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” Desmond Tutu


Acts of service are acts that change the world. Are you ready to serve? There are a few things you should consider: Please note that we are a working board. Directors and officers are expected to attend both monthly Board and Chapter meetings. Different roles have different hands-on time requirements and "busy" seasons. Expect to invest at least one hour per week and to support board wide initiatives as needed. 

There are some great benefits to joining the board! Of course, the most important is that you’ll have a direct opportunity to make a positive and meaningful impact in our community.  

  • This is a working board! You will work, you will be challenged, and you will grow personally, professionally, and within the HR community.  
  • You will elevate and add to your transferrable skills. 
  • You’ll save money on chapter dues, monthly meetings, and national conferences.
  • You’ll earn SHRM PDCs for your volunteerism. 
  • And so much more!

I hope you’ll take some time to consider an open board position and match your time and talent to the role(s) that interest you most. Not everyone has the ability to commit to serving on a professional board - help us build our bench by joining a committee instead!  Need more information? Let's connect! Our typical nomination, election, and announcement cycle is September - November.
