The 2015 Pinnacle Award Winning Chapter of the El Paso Society for Human Resource Management was originally established in April 1954 as the Personnel Managers Association of El Paso. The organization evolved over the years and transitioned through the American Society of Personnel Administrators (ASPA) and into the El Paso Society for Human Resource Management. The chapter was affiliated with the National Society for Human Resource Management in 1978.


Dear Members,

The El Paso Society for Human Resources Management takes the Coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously and the health and safety of our members and our community is of the utmost importance.  And, it is also important at this time to follow all public health authority guidelines related to COVID-19 and to help our members navigate through this situation. 

As a reminder, the upcoming March 25th event on the topic of the “Navigating ADA & Workforce Accommodations will be held virtually. In times like these it’s important that you are informed with the most up to date information on how to navigate with the pandemic in the workplace. As a SHRM member there is information constantly being sent to us. We are posting whatever National and Local information we have on our Social Media. Regarding our programming we will doing all online until further notice

As of today March 24th of 2020 at 10:10am El Paso City & County Health Authorities issued a Stay Home, Work Safe” Order. Click on the link to read more about it. In summary. The “Stay Home. Work Safe” order for El Paso will go in effect at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, March 24 and be in effect until further notice.

Some of the exceptions of the order will include, but are not limited to:

  •  Emergency Personal
  •  Healthcare Personal
  •  Groceries
  •  Financial, critical trades
  •  Postal Services
  •  Food delivery or pick-up
  •  Home-based care
  •  Childcare
  •  Media
  •  Those performing essential government functions

Last month, the words "Coronavirus & Social Distancing" were not even in our vocabulary. Today, through non-stop media coverage, most of us have become "experts" on pandemics, the spiky virus and the rising toll that it’s taking on our world.  The world is shifting in an unprecedented way, but we are shifting together. Our Government, scientists and health organizations are collaborating like never before, they are also remaining unified & coordinating their efforts to bring some stability back to the world.  It is important that during times like this, we also stay unified.   

We must understand that tensions are going to escalate with people confined to a limited space day after day. Healthcare workers are going to feel overwhelmed and exhausted by the unexpected burden that has taken place. Our employees might be facing financial pressures related to loss of income, which can cause added stress & pressure to you as well.

We must be reminded that we are all in this together, it's going to be bumpy, but if we remain kind to each other we can prove that we are more united than what our world seems like right now.

Take care,

Art Gloria

EL PASO SHRM President, 2020

With more than 500 SHRM chapters, the Top 25 Fundraising Chapters represent the top five percent of all SHRM chapters. These chapters have the highest yearly contributions, including gifts from the chapter plus recognition credits donated by individuals or companies on behalf of the chapter.

The award aligns individual chapters’ and state councils’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that enhance the human resource profession.

“SHRM exists because of our great chapters and state councils like EPSHRM which work tirelessly to help advance the important mission of the HR profession through initiatives that support our future, build inclusive organizations and focus on workplace readiness,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “Recognizing you as a recipient of this prestigious award is just one way to show that SHRM supports you and that we are by your side step by step as we move Together Forward.” 

The SHRM Learning System Champion status is a recognition of our local chapter's work to elevate the HR profession through professional development and HR knowledge among members, gained from SHRM certification.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Excel Award recognizes local chapters and state council achievements in serving HR Professionals, Advancing the HR Profession and Enhancing the SHRM Community.  Awards are earned at four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.  Each level reflects a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments.  For 2015, our El Paso Chapter was recognized with the Silver Excel Award.
