About SHRM Northern California

Better workplaces for a better world starts locally

We are pleased to provide SHRM members in the San Francisco Bay Area with California-specific information and resources, access to California HR experts in SHRM’s Knowledge Center, and local networking events, seminars and conferences.

This is an enhanced member benefit for SHRM members in the Bay Area. California has 16 SHRM chapters, but the Northern California group is a “community” that is part of SHRM. All SHRM members in Northern California are automatically part of this group and don’t pay any membership fees. Programs are open to all Northern California HR professionals, regardless of SHRM affiliation.
