How it works?

We (Temple SHRM) will be paired along with TUHR directors and managers in a group. We will have prepared interview questions to ask the community members who attend. After three questions asked and answered by one “interviewee”, there will be a feedback session where we along with TUHR administrators will let the interviewees know their strengths and developmental opportunities.

SHRM Membership Extended

SHRM Affiliate of(1)

Hello SHRMers!

This email is about SHRM membership. I know that there have been a lot of questions and concerns about membership. We have extended the due date for membership to this Wednesday, October 21st, so if you have not yet joined, this is your chance to. You can pick up an application at Alter 333C or get one from tushrm.orgMembership dues are $30 for a semester or $50 for a year and you will get National SHRM and Philly SHRM membership. It can be cash or a check made out to Temple SHRM. Applications can be handed in at our general body meeting or at Alter 333C.
If you can not hand in your application and dues by Wednesday, I will still be accepting applications. I will be sending the first round of National and Philly SHRM membership out soon. If you hand in your dues after Wednesday, you will get your National and Philly SHRM membership in January or February due to it being a long process for National SHRM to process all the applications.
I want to let everyone know that even though you are not a member, you can still come to meetings and other events that TUSHRM holds. We welcome everyone and hope that everyone comes to our meetings and events to better yourself as a professional, grow your professional network and make new friends. The only events that you will not be able to attend are the members only events or special events with speakers like lunch.
Please contact me at with any questions or concerns.
