Congratulations to Sue Greene on being recognized as one of Pennsylvania's 50 over 50 for 2023

Each year, City & State Pennsylvania identifies the top Commonwealth change-makers who have demonstrated enduring impact in the areas of relationship-building, professionalism, civic responsibility and vision. They are politicians and lobbyists, entrepreneurs and community organizers – many with remarkable longevity. Collectively, their accomplishments show the value and the impact of effort over decades – and the Keystone State is incalculably richer for their contributions.

Congratulations to Susquehanna SHRM on their outstanding representation at the 2023 State Conference

This year at our 2023 State Conference in State College, SHRMA members represented their chapter and won them the recognition of having the most members attend the conference. As a result PA SHRM has made a contribution of $300 to the SHRM Foundation in the name of SHRMA.


Congratulations to our 2023 Chapter of the Year: Lancaster SHRM!!!

Lancaster SHRM takes its relationship with the PA State Council seriously by attending every State Council meeting over the past year and has also had at least one member at each of the three conferences that PA State Council provides. They have also had members who attended the SHRM Annual Conference and Leadership Conference. This chapter also boasts all 7 CLA positions on their board. They have 8 members who are part of the SHRM A-Team. They utilize social media for their membership recruitment by optimizing content “shares” such as event photos, member spotlights and sponsor spotlights. They partner with local leaders and organizations through MOU agreements for cross-promotional marketing. This chapter also offers a continuous and limitless referral program to their members earning a free breakfast meeting program.

Lancaster SHRM also utilizes a fun and interactive campaign “Spin with Tim: The Journey to Mega Chapter” (cycling spin program) to grow from a 450-member chapter to 501 to become a Mega Chapter. This chapter also offers six (bi-monthly) virtual new member orientations to welcome new members. After orientation, new members receive a voucher to attend one event for free. They offer 9 in-person professional development programs each year that provide at least 1 recertification credit for each program. They also offer two full-day conferences for their members in the spring and fall. Their Government Affairs Committee developed two fee resource programs, B.Y.O. Lunch & Learn and HR:101 which are offered 4 times per year.

Lancaster SHRM also opened up its certification classes to other nearby chapters.

Lancaster SHRM has been nominated six times and now, have won for their 4 th time! We saw a pattern since 2017 where they have won every two years. Just goes to show that persistence pays off!

Congratulations, Lancaster SHRM on your 2023 win and a very successful year!
