Volunteer

Serving as a volunteer is a great way to give back to the HR community and to network with your peers.  It is also a great way to use skills you already have or to develop a new skill you need.  Salt Lake SHRM operates with the leadership of a 20+ member volunteer leadership team serving more than 500 members.

Chapter Meetings - Chapter Professional Development Meetings are held 10 times a year.  There are opportunities for you to volunteer at both the chapter meetings as well as other events as announced.

Other Opportunities -The list below describes the various Salt Lake SHRM leadership areas in which we could also utilize volunteers. Although the descriptions are very general, there are many opportunities within each area to serve. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be working with each area leader to organize our volunteer efforts and scheduling you into the opportunities available.
