The PA SHRM Chapter of the Year award recognizes outstanding achievement in chapter initiatives and contributions to effective HR management. Each year PA SHRM will award one chapter $1,000 at our Annual State Conference. PA SHRM State Council will also make a contribution of $500 to the SHRM Foundation on behalf of the winning chapter (in the chapter’s name).
Chapter Eligibility: Complete and submit the Chapter self nomination form and all supporting
documentation to Victoria Krotzer, (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 1. Entries will be evaluated by a committee appointed by the State Council Executive Board and the decision will be final.
The State Council recognizes that some of our Chapters run on a calendar year basis and others run on a fiscal year. In an effort to treat each Chapter equally and meet the reviewers’ needs and year to year timelines due to fluctuating dates of the State Conference, each Chapter should complete the selfnomination form for Award year August 1 – July 31.
Please note that your Chapter should submit a nomination form even if you have nothing to report in one or more initiative areas. Judging will be based on quantitative and qualitative scores. Chapters scoring the highest total points in the quantitative section will move on to the second round of judging based on qualitative results.
1ST ANNUAL PA SHRM CHAPTER OF THE YEAR AWARD went to SEPA SHRM
In addition to scoring the most points in the quantitative portion of the nomination process, SEPA also demonstrates a very active chapter with a strong board. Some of the highlights of the qualitative portion included:
SEPA was awarded a check for $1,000 and a $500.00 contribution in their name was submitted to SHRM Foundation.
Congratulations to SEPA SHRM. Keep up your fantastic work!
