About Us

    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, as well as our satellite chapter in Twin Counties. We have nearly 100 members representing an array of business, government and university interests. In addition, we support two student SHRM chapters at Radford University and Virginia Tech.
