Below is a condensed description of these categories.  For more detailed information on member qualifications, view the "Member Qualifications" link after clicking on "Join Today", or you can get the same information by viewing our bylaws.

HR Members are those that provide HR services to their own company’s internal staff, and it includes attorneys or professors that specialize in HR.  This category may apply to bona fide HR consultants that fill a role that would otherwise typically be filled by an internal HR employee, and do not sell other products or services.  An example would be an expert that goes in and writes a diversity policy for a company to use, or implements new performance review programs.

Business Partner Affiliates are those that do not fit into one of the preceding categories, or those that provide products or services to HR professionals.  Examples would include a benefits broker/administrator, payroll services provider, staffing firm, etc.  For a more detailed distinction between an HR member and a business partner affiliate, please review our bylaws on our website.

Student Members are those that have not started a career in HR, or if so have not worked more than part-time in HR, are working NO MORE than 20 hours per week in an HR position and are enrolled for at least 6 credit hours per semester from a degree granting institution, and who have a degree emphasis in Human Resources.  It is aimed at those looking to get into the profession, not those that have been in the profession but decided to go back to school.  You should meet these criteria for at least half of the calendar year in which you are applying.

You need a member login ID and password to register for events with member pricing.  You get those after your application has been approved and payment is processed.  If you already applied to join and you need to register for an event before you get your login ID and password, and want member pricing, please call 480-893-6110 and ask for Daphne.
