President's Message

On behalf of the SHRM Olympia Board of Directors, Welcome to 2017!

We are planning great things for this year. As a SHRM Preferred Provider, SHRM Olympia is diligently working on providing more programs that are pre-approved for SHRM credits, while continuing to provide HRCI Credits to our members and guests. Visit our website frequently for information on our monthly meetings and our annual conference which happens late spring. Our website also allows us to communicate different local, regional, and national HR conferences. If you’d like to join our listserv to get all of our upcoming events sent directly to you, don’t hesitate to contact me!

Our board this year is a great mix of local public and private employers, which we plan on using to our advantage to provide meaningful and cutting edge meetings.  We read all of the comments you provide each meeting, and will always plan for meeting topics around the areas that you find pertinent.

Don’t forget to designate SHRM Olympia as your home chapter; when you designate us as your chapter, SHRM provides the chapter financial support to assist us in being able to provide you with the programs and HRCI credits you want. You can designate SHRM Olympia as your chapter using the Chapter Designation form. Scan and email your form to You will receive a confirmation email once your form has been received.

If you are a local employer with a job opening, we would be more than happy to post your job announcement for you for FREE. Email me for additional information.

Feel free to send me a message at if you have any questions or concerns. If you are looking for an opportunity to get involved, check out our LinkedIn group or find us on Facebook or Twitter!
