Welcome to SHRM's100% Chapter Transition Toolkit! A 100% chapter requires all of its members to be national SHRM members. These chapters receive benefits from SHRM that non-100% chapters do not. You can read more about those benefits below. If your chapter is exploring the option of becoming a 100% chapter, this toolkit will give you ideas on getting started. You don't have to make the transition overnight; in fact, you can convert over a period of years. Your SHRM regional team can assist you in the process!
WHY BECOME A 100% CHAPTER?
Heightened level of professionalism. SHRM studies show that senior-level HR professionals are more likely to be members of 100% chapters. Retention rates are also higher for 100% chapters.
- Professional solidarity
- Enhanced local credibility
Sense of commitment to the profession
- Members would probably be more aware of national leadership opportunities
- Enhanced credibility at SHRM headquarters
Equal information reference base for all members
Greater level of financial support from SHRM
$25 per year per SHRM member vs. $10 per year per SHRM member for non-100% chapters
Chapter Financial Support Payments (CFSP) paid four times per year instead of twice per year for non-100% chapters. Better cash flow for chapters.
