Thank you to our SHRA Speakers and Sponsors for a successful conference



The Sarasota-Manatee Human Resource Association was awarded the 2016 SHRM Learning System Champion. SHRA will be recognition at the November SHRM Volunteer Leaders’ Summit.

The competency-based SHRM-CP® and SHRM-SCP® credentials are the new global standard in HR certification. These credentials are among the first HR certifications focused on teaching and testing the practical, real-life information HR professionals need to advance their organizations, and excel in their careers today, including knowledge, skills, and behavioral competencies.

The SHRM Learning System Champion status is a recognition of your chapter’s hard work to elevate the HR profession through professional development and HR knowledge among members, gained from SHRM certification. SHRM created this prestigious distinction in support of its premier educational product. This status also helps to promote the HR profession at the local level by using the SHRM Learning System® for SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP.
