SHRM 2018 Volunteers
Share |

As the 2018 host chapter of the SHRM Conference being held in Chicago next June 17 – 20, 2018, we’re excited to report that our chapter, Chicago SHRM, is responsible for coordinating the volunteer efforts necessary to support the conference.  This entails filling approximately 1,800 volunteer slots with approximately 1,200 volunteers for the conference. The benefits of volunteering are widespread, not to mention that for every six-hour shift you volunteer for earns you a free day at the conference! 

The purpose of this note is to ask those of you that have an interest in volunteering to complete a form that simply lets us know that you have an interest.  It does not represent a commitment of any kind; it just tells us that you want us to keep your name on file.  This interest form is open to our members until December 31st. The actual volunteer application form will be open to the members on January 24, 2018. When you complete this interest form you will be among the first to be able to volunteer.

AND, when we open volunteering, the first 200 volunteers that select three shifts, provided one of the shifts you select is to act as a Session Host, you will be entitled to a free full conference registration, including the Tuesday night concert!

We would encourage all of you to take advantage of this opportunity and to spread the word to your colleagues and HR friends who are not yet members to join our chapter by Clicking Here prior to the end of the year.  Any new members will be given the opportunity to express an interest in volunteering and give the first chance to pick their volunteer slots after the first of the year.  AND, as a reminder, if you or your colleagues are not yet a SHRM national member, you can join or renew and use the discount code of MRM20STC before December 31, 2017 to receive a $20 discount on the dues.

Remember, SHRM and Chicago SHRM are Better Together – be a member of both organizations. Click Here to see why!
