Over its six years in existence, SHRM's Advocacy Team ("A-Team") has grown to over 9,100 members—including an increase of approximately 1,000 members in 2016 alone—and now boasts a full complement of Advocacy Captains for every state and congressional district throughout the country.
Thanks to the overwhelming commitment of our members, we have now successfully completed appointments to all 435 congressional districts; locating, recruiting and confirming willing and able ambassadors for the profession was a major undertaking. Our Advocacy Captains, along with other resident HR Advocates, commit to building a personal relationship with their members of Congress and their staffs and to sharing the HR perspective on workplace issues pending in Washington. SHRM and its members should take pride in this major accomplishment. But this effort doesn't stop there.
SHRM looks forward to engaging both our Advocacy Captains and HR Advocates on various workplace public-policy initiatives in 2017. Currently, SHRM's A-Team is welcoming the 115th Congress and sharing SHRM's 21st Century Workplace Principles with lawmakers. And before long, A-Team members will be engaged in upcoming debates over repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, comprehensive tax reform and other public-policy issues impacting the HR profession. We'll be reporting about these engagements in future editions of SHRM's HR Issues Update e-newsletter.
