The El Paso Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management was established in 1954 and currently has nearly 250 members. This chapter maintains a direct relationship with SHRM and many members belong to the National organization. All EPSHRM members are strongly encouraged to affiliate themselves with SHRM. The chapter has monthly meeting and sponsors several seminars throughout the year. Members enjoy discounted rates to attend these functions.

Members also receive a monthly newsletter, networking opportunities with other HR professionals on a monthly basis, and access to information that helps keep members current on changing legislation. Events are held in a casual atmosphere and run on a tight time schedule, therefore, no soliciting is allowed. Our organization is run by volunteer leaders committed to promoting the human resource profession and to meeting the needs of its members.
