Welcome to the New River Valley Chapter of SHRM, Inc.

The New River Valley Chapter of SHRM was founded in Blacksburg, Virginia, in 1971. Originally, most members were employed by local industries. Today our membership reflects the diverse economic interests characteristic of our region. We serve the New River Valley, a scenic area encompassing Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Dublin, Floyd, Giles, Pulaski, and Radford. We have over 100 members representing an array of business, government and university professionals. In addition, we support two student SHRM chapters at Radford University and Virginia Tech.








SHRM is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and would like to ensure that you are kept informed about how to manage this communicable disease in your workplace.
