Welcome to NOLA SHRM

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I would like to welcome all new and returning members to NOLA SHRM!

NOLA SHRM is proud to be the local affiliate of the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), the world’s largest HR professional society representing 285,000 members in more than 165 countries.  With more than 530 local members, NOLA SHRM is the only Louisiana SHRM Chapter to reach Mega-level membership providing us a greater professional networking benefit. Through NOLA SHRM learning opportunities, our members are empowered to be the voice of the profession using sound and ethical practices on human resource management issues.

Since 1962, NOLA SHRM has served as a resource for local human resources professionals and businesses providing a forum for personal and professional development on issues related to human resource management, promoting fellowship, and offering various networking experiences to keep our members engaged and current on industry trends.

The Board, including myself as this year’s president, are dedicated to ensuring our collective affiliation with SHRM is a benefit to our profession and your career. Our monthly meetings will provide our audience with many outstanding speakers and will present topics important to our calling, as well as providing opportunities for networking. We are also exploring several volunteer opportunities that will help our community and bring us together. We value our membership and want your experience to be rewarding.

I encourage you to make the most of your NOLA SHRM membership benefits which include:

  • Discounted rates to our monthly General Membership meetings
  • Our bi-monthly In-Focus and Legal Perk sessions
    • HR In-Focus is a bi-monthly meeting where local HR professionals get together, in a small group setting, to discuss current issues, trends and best practices in HR.
    • Legal Perk is a bi-monthly meeting where members get to interact with a local employment lawyer, in a small group setting, to discuss current legal issues in employment law.
  • Strategic Leadership Learning Series providing leaders with quarterly strategic workshops
  • Networking Socials to get to know your fellow HR professionals after hours
  • Access to our Membership Roster to help build your professional network.

Please explore our website and learn more about our programs, leadership, member benefits and how you can be a part of our extensive network of HR leaders! If you are not a member yet, we welcome you to visit our Membership page and join today.

Should you have any questions, please send them to the Chapter’s email address at  I look forward to meeting you at our events this year and wish to thank each and every one of you for your support as we continue our pledge alongside SHRM in our mission to develop and serve the HR professional, and advance and lead the HR profession.
