Dear Members,


There have been several communications from SHRM and HRCI recently regarding the new SHRM certification being offered to eligible HR Professionals in good standing beginning in January 2015. SHRM has compiled some FAQs on this subject on the www.shrm.org website  –see/Certification/SHRMCertification/Pages/FAQs.aspx. You can also read statements from HRCI leadership on this subject on the www.hrci.org website.

 Please be assured that it is our intention as your local SHRM chapter, to continue to support our HRCI certified professionals for the foreseeable future, offering opportunities to obtain or maintain your HRCI certification.

 As we know more regarding the new certification process and continuation credits offered for the SHRM credentials we will send out an announcement.  We hope to learn much more about this issue at the Annual Conference occurring June 23rd – June 27th.

We also plan to provide pre-approved SHRM educational topics once these have been finalized by SHRM. Please contact certification@csshrm.org or leaperh@gmail.com with questions or concerns.
