 2012 Membership Superstar

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in Alexandria, VA has awarded HRA of Greater Oak Brook the status of Membership Superstar for its scope of work in 2012.

The EXCEL Award is the recognition component of the SHRM Affiliate Program for Excellence (SHAPE).  SHAPE measures include alignment with SHRM’s overall objectives, strategic focus and initiatives as well as promoting the HR profession at the local level.

J. Robert Carr of SHRM noted that "Even though our economy continues to be challenging, your chapter was able to overcome these challenges and still advance SHRM membership in 2012. Many chapters experienced declining membership during the year, so your chapter's ability to maintain or realize growth is to be highly commended."

HRA of Greater Oak Brook receives a Certificate of Recognition, a specialized banner to display at its meetings and events, and is being recognized in SHRM’s publications and at its conferences.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management.
