SHRM NM Advocacy Captains
The SHRM Advocacy Team (A-Team) has been developed by SHRM Government Affairs as a way to assist HR Advocates — professionals like you — in making their voices heard on public policy issues impacting the workplace. A key goal for this program is to establish a network of committed volunteers to serve as the “go-to” people for lawmakers and their staffs on workforce-related issues. These individuals, termed "Advocacy Captains," will reside in each of the 435 congressional districts across the country. Each Advocacy Captain will serve as the face of HR within the district and act as the point of contact for SHRM’s Government Affairs Team when the need for in-district advocacy arises. We are very excited to have our own Advocacy Captains, here in New Mexico!

The Human Resource Management Association of New Mexico (HRMA) has partnered with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve which provides many different services to our veterans and military families, some of which is assisting in the identification and coordination of employment opportunities for service members and their family.
This partnership provides many different services to our veterans and those in need, including:
• Individual mentorship programs
• Interviewing skills sessions
• Resume writing guidance
• Networking job opportunities with HR professionals and business owners
Our goal at HRMA is to not only provide guidance and support, but help all members of our National Guard and Reserve and those in need find a job by utilizing the resources of our members who are willing to volunteer their time, knowledge and expertise to assist in these goals.
A representative from each of the 5 SHRM affiliate chapters in the state confirmed New Mexico's support for the men and women of the National Guard and Reserve on January 21, 2012 by signing an ESGR Statement of Support.
