On behalf of the Society for Human Resource Management’s staff and Board of Directors, I want to congratulate your chapter for your achievement of attaining Membership Superstar status for 2011! 

Your chapter attained over 3% growth in SHRM members for 2011!  Considering the challenges faced due to the economy, this is an outstanding accomplishment. We recognize chapters had to really stretch their resources and be innovative in their approaches to attract and retain members. I know your chapter’s volunteer efforts are responsible for your achievement, and I hope you express my sincere appreciation to them. This commitment to growing SHRM membership is to be commended. 

As the economy continues to bounce back, we hope you will see continued growth in SHRM membership. The membership growth goal remains at 3% for 2012.   Be sure to leverage the many resources available at www.shrm.org/vlrc, where you will also find the schedule for our Membership teleconferences, and continue to share best practices with your peers. In addition, your SHRM regional team is available to provide you information and guidance in your membership initiatives. 

Congratulations again on this achievement! Keep up the great work, and thanks for all you do! 

All the best,

Pamela J. Green, SPHR
Vice President, US Membership
