Central Illinois Human Resources Group


About the Central Illinois Human Resources Group

The Central Illinois Human Resources Group (CiHRG) is a local chapter (#246) of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Since 1948, SHRM has developed and provided programs and services to improve the professional knowledge of human resource professionals. At the same time, SHRM has worked to create a broader understanding of the importance of human resource management and has served as the source for information about developments in the field.

Mission, Purpose, and History:

1) A local starting point for networking, information, professional development and continued support of excellence in HR.

2) To raise the standards, visibility, and recognition of the Human Resources profession.

Chartered in August 1976 and formerly known as the Champaign-Urbana Personnel Association (CUPA), our group continues to grow to meet the needs of our members.
