Affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management

Join CiHRG

CiHRG is an affiliated chapter with the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM).  Membership to SHRM is not required to join CiHRG, however, we do encourage membership in both organizations.  

Who should join CiHRG?  Membership eligibility, as defined in the CiHRG by-laws, is confined to those persons in the Central Illinois area who are actively engaged as Human Resource practitioners and/or who are members of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).  The membership year for CiHRG will be from January to December (of the current year).

Benefits Of CiHRG Membership

CiHRG members benefit from a built-in network of HR Professionals.  CiHRG Board members strive to provide members with current and applicable topics for monthly professional development events.  The goal is to provide relevant information that can be used in HR departments.

  • 9 monthly professional development events per year.  Professional development events qualify for HRCI and SHRM re-certification credits. 
  • Opportunities to volunteer and serve on committees to determine the future direction of the chapter.
  • Post HR jobs on our website for free.
  • Member-only resources including access to past presentations and membership directory.



We are beginning our membership drive for the Central Illinois HR group.  Current memberships will expire on December 31, 2022.

By the end of 2022, we will have held 9 HR related meetings in-person and some virtually, which will result in 9 recertification credits.  We also started our Road Trip series, which included 3 additional programs and 3 additional recertification credits. 

We are excited about the upcoming year and are planning many exciting events.  While we are moving towards in-person meetings, we understand that some members appreciate the hybrid format and will continue to incorporate virtual opportunities in 2023.  To that end, the board has decided to return to our pre-COVID era structure for dues.
