Welcome to Stateline SHRM.  We are an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, a global HR professional organization.  We offer you the best of two worlds:  an opportunity to network, learn, and develop professionally in a local setting, as well as to share in the professional knowledge, and dedicated support and resources available to us as a SHRM affiliate.

Stateline SHRM generally meets on the second Thursday morning of the month.  We plan programs and events that address the real-world HR issues of our members.  These programs almost always offer HRCI credit for PHR, SPHR, Continuing credit for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP and other certified HR professionals.  Stateline strives to offer our members personal, professional, and leadership development through participation at our meetings, on our committees, and on our board.  We also reach out to organizations within the McHenry County community who are in need of professional human resource support or services.

We encourage you to look through our website to learn more about us.  Please reach out to one of us if you have any questions or comments.  We hope to see you at our next meeting or event!
