About Us

    Our chapter consists of approximately 25 members from the central SD area who are all members of national SHRM. We provide members with professional development by offering recertification credit for each program, legislative updates, and networking opportunities that stimulate professional growth and enhance workplace contributions. Members also have the opportunity to develop leadership skills by serving in volunteer leadership roles in the organization. The Chapter continues to explore opportunities to participate in or enhance programs currently offered by different entities to promote workforce readiness.




    The SDSHRM Council unifies 7 individual SD SHRM affiliated chapters to advance the HR profession. They partner with over 400 volunteers in South Dakota to represent our state at a regional and national level.
