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 and its members have an opportunity—and an obligation—to use our unique professional expertise in solving a significant equity crisis in America. Together Forward @ Work is a call to action for the HR profession and broader business community to drive racial inequity out of America’s workplaces.

The NRV SHRM board has taken the pledge.


SHRM and HR Virginia understand the difficulty COVID-19 has placed on recertification especially after canceling the VA State Conference and the National SHRM Conference. Because of this they have extended and implemented additional avenues for recertification which we have listed below:

  • SHRM is hosting many COVID-19 related webcasts that are approved for PDCs, as well as webcasts on other topics
  • Individuals can submit their COVID-19 related work-based projects for PDCs
  • The SHRM Foundation “Veterans at Work Certificate Program” is approved for 10 PDCs and is free. The following link will take you to information about the program: https://www.shrm.org/foundation/about/pages/veterans-at-work-certificate-program.aspx.
  • The Employing Abilities @Work Certificate program is approved for 10 PDCs and is free. The following link will take you to information about the program: https://employingabilities.org/
