 Volunteer Engagement

In alignment with our mission "to serve the professional and advance the profession,” Louisville SHRM offers all members the opportunity to grow professionally and network informally with your fellow Chapter members by volunteering for committees or special projects. Our volunteer engagement encompasses both long and short-term time commitments and a variety of assignments. Some volunteers consult informally with other members on issues and problems within their area of expertise as part of our Chapter Member Network, while others write articles for our monthly newsletter, coordinate speaker appearances, and register attendees for meetings and seminars.
There are many benefits to becoming a member and getting more involved in the chapter through volunteering. The LSHRM leadership team is continuously striving to provide you valuable products, services, and opportunities to learn and network.
Why Volunteer?
As a non-profit professional association, the LSHRM Chapter is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, dedicated to providing its members with quality information regarding the field of human resource management. Our Chapter offers a large variety of services and programs as communication vehicles to provide timely and updated information to the membership.
With over 650 members and growing, the Board is asking for your assistance as volunteers to help sustain the current services and offerings of the LSHRM Chapter. At any time, the Chapter has 40 - 60 volunteers working together to serve the needs of our membership.
Volunteering provides an opportunity for networking, interaction and fun! It also gives the volunteer a sense of contribution to the profession and a sense of personal gratification. Volunteering is a great personal and professional development activity, contributing to your career growth and expanding your resume.
