SHRM Advocacy Alerts

SHRM has launched its fourth annual August In-District Advocacy Campaign, scheduled during the August Congressional Work Period from August 3 through September 8. During this time, members of Congress will be in their home states and districts to meet with constituents.

SHRM urges you to advocate for the reauthorization of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) to enhance workforce development, promote skills-based hiring, and address critical workforce shortages through collaborative efforts.

SHRM urges you to contact your senators and representatives in Congress to support the bipartisan Telehealth Expansion Act of 2023 (H.R. 1843/S. 1001).
