A Welcome Message from Our President's Desk...
Welcome Visitors and Members!
Northern Virginia, one of the major metropolitan areas in the country, is a major hub for government entities, national associations, defense and government contractors, and technology companies. The Northern Virginia Chapter for the Society for Human Resource Management (NOVA SHRM) is honored to be the largest chapter in the area bringing together more than 800 Human Resource professionals. The Chapter provides numerous high quality programs, networking and developmental opportunities, certification support, and community service to the members it serves in the Northern Virginia community.
Our monthly chapter meetings, professional development seminars, academies, and special interest groups (SIGs) offer a wide array of valuable programs and educational opportunities. The program topics range from new legislation that affects HR to the latest trends in social media. At NOVA SHRM, the member, non-member, visitor, student, and entrepreneur will find a community that satisfies all their learning needs ensuring they have the keen knowledge to apply at work.
Because professional and personal development is paramount to one’s career success, NOVA SHRM provides our members with excellent opportunities for networking and career development. In conjunction with the Dulles SHRM chapter, our Pinnacle award winning annual mentoring program provides our members a confidential environment with plenty of opportunities to develop and acquire mentorship skills they may not be able to obtain through their own daily work experiences.
When it comes to networking, NOVA SHRM is your place to be! We understand the importance of networking and we strive to provide our members with many opportunities to grow their professional network. They include NOVA SHRM groups on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, career networking events, happy hours, social events, and member-only forums, as well as networking opportunities at each of our chapter meetings, professional development seminars, academies, special interest groups, and more!
For the HR aficionado and/or the one entering the field, we regularly host orientation and educational sessions targeted to inform you of upcoming HRCI certification opportunities. For those members recently certified, NOVA SHRM shows its commitment to advancing the profession by providing them with certification rebates up to $75.
In closing, NOVA SHRM is the place to be for the human resource practitioner, the human resource aficionado, the human resource executive, the person in transition, the student, and the business owner or entrepreneur interested in advancing their people practices while expanding their network. With so much that NOVA SHRM has to offer, don’t delay! Make NOVA SHRM your chapter of choice and sign up to become a member today!
