Why Join a New Mexico SHRM Chapter?
Many New Mexico HR professionals are not aware of the benefits of joining a local chapter. With the local chapters, you have access to great resources right in your own back yard. Most of the chapters in New Mexico hold monthly program meetings with a speaker, and they offer a variety of networking opportunities. If you are interested in SHRM Chapter membership, attend one of those meetings, just to see what it is all about.
You will find links to each of our five New Mexico chapters on the homepage of this website here. If you have questions about New Mexico SHRM Chapter membership, please contact our SHRM NM State Council Membership Director, Tammy Jaramillo at TJaramillo@burtcpa.com.
