    Welcome to East Alabama SHRM

    Founded in 1973, the East Alabama Society for Human Resource Management (EASHRM) serves its members through providing professional development opportunities, networking opportunities, and the latest information and research in the field. The chapter is an affiliate of SHRM, the world's largest association devoted to human resource management.

    Growing strong at around 150 members including students, EASHRM supports the mission of SHRM: Serve the Professional and Advance the profession. EASHRM also plays an instrumental part in influencing legislation on the national and state levels. Along with the Alabama State Council, our members travel to Washington, D.C. each year to visit members of Congress.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Members of the Alabama Society for Human Resource Management were on Capitol Hill on Thursday, September 15th, to share views on new legislative issues being considered by Congress that impact the workplace.

    The group included Erica Norris of the East Alabama SHRM chapter (EASHRM).  She was among more than 12 human resource professionals from across the state of Alabama that met with their representatives and congressional staffs in Washington for the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) annual Capitol Hill Visit.  They spoke about the changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime regulations.

    EASHRM prides itself in professionalism and advancing the human resource profession. Our organization has proven its excellence with the following awards

    • 2015 SHRM Excel Silver Award and the Foundation Chapter Champion.  
    • 2014 SHRM Membership Star Award
    • 2012 SHRM Excel Chapter Champion Award
    • 2011 Superior Merit Award
    • 1997-2009 Superior Merit Award
    • 2008-2009 SHRM Excel Chapter Champion Award

    These awards are tremendous accomplishments and recognizes the chapter's ability in operations, the professional development of chapter members, promotion of the profession and support of SHRM in partnership.  A big thanks goes out to all contributors, members, and volunteers who helped us succeed.
