Volunteer

We want YOU
SHRM-GT is a success because of our amazing members and
WE THANK YOU!

As a member of SHRM-GT you have the ideal opportunity to give back to other members and our community by volunteering on one (or more) of our committees. The expansive offerings our committees provide include a wide variety of opportunities to meet almost anyone’s interests and/or passions. Not only can you feel good about giving back as a volunteer, but the time commitment can be very minimal – we want you to volunteer in any capacity you can, whether it’s for a month, 6 months, or even on a project-to-project basis!

Each committee and committee member has a direct impact on the success of the SHRM-GT chapter. Please consider volunteering for a committee as a valued member of our chapter!

Workforce Readiness Committee

SHRM Foundation Committee

The SHRM Foundation committee’s goal is to educate the chapter on the Foundation’s newest educational resources, status of annual Foundation campaigns, and any upcoming events. With a strong desire to develop collaboration and support in Southern Arizona, the committee seeks to partner with non-profits in the community for cooperative events and outside volunteer opportunities.

This committee is looking for someone who would love the opportunity to be the Director of the committee and be the liaison between SHRM-GT and the SHRM Foundation.
