Find a Chapter

Interested in being connected to your profession in a deeper, more meaningful way? Want to increase your knowledge of human resources by having greater access to HR updates and information and education? Have you longed to “phone a friend” when you have a question, but you just don’t have the connections?

Then you’ll want to join SHRM and/or an affiliated chapter. And, actually, let’s make it an AND, not an “or”. And here’s why:

Let’s start with your options:

  • You can join NATIONAL SHRM
  • You can join both. Let’s start by explaining your options:

How do I join Arizona SHRM?

Arizona SHRM does not have members. Affiliate membership is available at one of the seven chapters. The local chapters, located in various geographic areas throughout the state, provide programming, development and networking opportunities for HR professionals in those geographic areas.

If I’m a national member of SHRM, am I automatically a member of a local chapter?

No. SHRM chapters are autonomous organizations, so it is not automatic that you will be a member of your local chapter when you join SHRM, and vice versa. But it’s easy to join. Simply locate your local chapter on the reverse side of this brochure and then go to the website to join.


In Arizona, SHRM has 6 local affiliate chapters which provide additional programming, development and networking opportunities in the state. SHRM chapters are autonomous organizations, so it is not automatic that you will be a member of your local chapter when you join SHRM, and vice versa.
