About Us

    Jayhawk Chapter

    We are an organization comprised of Human Resources professionals that meets once a month in Lawrence, Kansas. We are affiliated with the National SHRM organization.

    Briefly About our Chapter

    The SHRM - Jayhawk Chapter serves human resource professionals in Douglas County and the surrounding counties and we invite all human resource professionals in the area to join us. Our Chapter is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management.

    Our organization is designed to support the needs of the human resource practitioner at a variety of levels. We offer programs that cover the range of human resource generalist responsibilities that we believe will add to your skill sets and enhance your understanding of the profession. We invite senior level practitioners as well. Strategic partnering is a business skill for the human resource professional that adds value to the bottom line.

    Our chapter membership is a great value and you do not have to be a national member to join us. Our goal is to network the human resource professionals in the community and through our collective voice, be able to positively impact our community and our profession.

    Please join us - see our website, attend a program, become a member. We'd love to have you!


    The ability for all Human Resource professionals to participate in a local professional organization is important to the Jayhawk SHRM chapter.  It is our pleasure to be able to offer a membership scholarship program available to those who are experiencing periods of unemployment or for those HR professionals whose employers are not able and/or willing to pay for a local professional membership. To apply, complete and return below application.
