GMA SHRM Chapter News 


Seeking Volunteers for the Job Boot Camp!

GMA SHRM will again partner with the Urban League of Madison to host the Job Boot Camp this August.  It is an informative day that starts with a keynote speaker and then provides access to local HR professionals to offer advice and feedback to area job seekers.  Volunteers are a key part of this event and provide attendees with valuable feedback on their job search process.  We are looking for volunteers in a number of areas:
·         Meet one-on-one with participants to answer questions and give guidance
·         Resume reviewers: review attendees’ resumes and provide feedback
·         Mock Interviewers:  Help attendees practice their interview skills through mock interviews
This year’s Job Boot Camp will be held on August 21st from 9 am until 12 pm at the Urban League of Madison.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Rachel Martin at RachelC.Martin@dhs.wisconsin.gov for more information or to sign up


The New SHRM Certification Information


SHRM is proud of your achievements and recognizes the time, money and energy you have invested. As an organization committed to its members, SHRM will continue to support and recognize your expertise.

Now your path to even greater opportunity is simple and clear. Your existing HR certification constitutes your eligibility to earn the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP which indicates to the global HR community that you have the competencies, knowledge and skills to perform effectively in today's ever-changing workplace.

If you are a current holder of an HR generalist certification (including: PHR, SPHR, GPHR, HRBP, HRMP*) or will obtain your certification by January 31, 2015, you are eligible for SHRM's new certification—at no cost—by completing the following three simple steps between January 5 and December 31, 2015:

  • Document that your current certification is in good standing.
  • Sign the SHRM Code of Ethics.
  • Complete a brief online tutorial on HR competencies.

Once you complete this process, you will earn the new SHRM credential and begin a three-year SHRM recertification cycle.

You will not lose or have to give up any of your current credentials in order to obtain the new SHRM Certification.
