December 19, 2018 - SHRS President Thank You

SHRS Members and Guests --
Thanks for the HR excitement you helped cultivate by engaging and attending Sooner HR Society (SHRS) meetings during 2018.  Our little community of HR folk have attended local, state, and national meetings and conferences all in the name of Sooner HR Society.  The other impressive part is you keep maintaining your Society of HR Management (SHRM) membership.  This little detail allows SHRM to pay our chapter a few extra dollars, which then allows SHRS to spend some bucks on you, by helping with monthly meals, finding great speakers, or holding holiday socials. 
Thanks for your commitment to the Human Resources profession and I wish you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season.

Tara Crowley, President

November 14, 2018 - Oklahoma's 100% Giving Club

In 2018, Sooner Human Resources Society, Oklahoma SHRM State Council and all SHRM chapters within Oklahoma made their annual donation from council/chapter funds to the SHRM Foundation! Therefore, Oklahoma is officially a member of the 100% Giving Club! 

The 100% Giving Club annually recognizes the states with 100% giving from the SHRM state council and all chapters within the state. This club signifies the collective dedication your state has to advancing the mission of the SHRM Foundation.

Oklahoma and the other states in the 100% Giving Club will be recognized at Volunteer Leaders’ Summit taking place November 15-17. 

We are proud to be a part of this achievement and thank you, our members, for making it happen!  Keep an eye out for more information regarding the Volunteer Leaders’ Summit.

Act now! Don’t let your credential expire!
We are nearing the end of the year and this is a perfect time to complete your To-Do-List and submit your SHRM Recertification application.  As a member of your SHRM Chapter, we are pleased to share an exclusive code for $15 off the SHRM Recertification fee for all applications submitted on or before 31 December.  Don’t delay!

Please use code 15OFFCSC when prompted on the payment page of the Recertification Application.

Here are a few things to help you along the way:

  • Your 3-year recertification period ends on the last day of your birth month.

Don’t let your credential lapse! Log into your Certification Portal to check your current professional development credit (PDC) status and submit your application when you have 60 PDCs. (If you submit early, your recertification cycle dates will not change, but you’ll have peace of mind.)

This exclusive SHRM member resource helps you identify areas of strength and opportunities for development based on the SHRM Competency Model. After completing it, your results will inform your professional development plan and you will be one PDC closer to 60.
