We invite you to join our chapter using Dual Membership!  SHRM and LCHRMA are joining forces to make membership and renewals easier for you!

The combined resources of both memberships work together to help you overcome HR challenges, advance your professional development, and be an asset in your local community. Why not have the best of both worlds?

Dual Membership

Joining or renewing your SHRM national membership and LCHRMA membership just got easier. Now you can do both at the same time.

Step 1: Sign-in to the SHRM Store to begin your transaction or create an account if you are new to SHRM.

Step 2: Add Lower Colombia HR Mgmt. Assoc. (LCHRMA) when you join or renew your SHRM national membership and select the dual membership option when prompted. It’s that simple!

Already a SHRM Member? Visit your MySHRM profile, choose Lower Colombia HR Mgmt. Assoc. (LCHRMA) under Chapter Association and continue to the cart to process your transaction.

Each morning, we receive an email from SHRM with this information so we can get you added to our roster and will send you a welcome email!

Still not convinced? LCHRMA membership is $0 annually which makes registering with us a no-brainer!
