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, 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.


Congratulations to the NRV Chapter: winner of the 2019 IMPACT Thrive award from HR Virginia! This award recognizes our work with the VEC to conduct monthly interview training sessions as well as our quarterly drives to support our local nonprofits! 



Starting in January 2020 the NRV SHRM Chapter will be kicking off a shoe drive with Soles4Souls. We will have a donation box at our next 3 chapter meetings for used shoes: any condition, any size, and any type! To learn more about this charity watch this brief YouTube video here or visit their website Soles4Souls.
