Are you a SHRM Member?
Did you know that if you designate PIHRA as your local chapter, a portion of your SHRM annual dues are redirected back to PIHRA? These funds are then used to support PIHRA member benefits and events in your local area. What a great way to give back to your HR community. These events provide ways for you to network with your community of HR peers, develop your HR expertise, and earn re-certification credits. To designate PIHRA as your local chapter, please return the completed Primary Chapter Designation Form to PIHRA’s Membership Department, or submit the NEW Electronic Form: PIHRA is Chapter # 0030.
If needed, you can download and print our PIHRA W9.
There are many ways to Volunteer with PIHRA & hone your leadership skills.
