SHRM Leadership Conference • FREE conference for chapter presidents OR presidents-elect • Hotel and designated meals covered • Chapter covers travel • EVERY chapter should be represented EVERY year • Held in DC area; includes visit to SHRM headquarters • November 17-19, 2011 (tentatively starts at 1:00 Thursday and ends at 2:00 Saturday)

  6. Chapter Leader Information Form (CLIF) • Online form for your chapter to submit complete board/volunteer roster • Due by 12/1, even if you don’t have all roles filled yet • List those roles you know, and provide remaining volunteer list later • Required for all chapters • Allows SHRM to keep in touch with your board members to announce new tools, webcasts, etc. Must submit on time to qualify for any award for the year

  7. How are we governed?

  8. Not-for-profit associations (AKA non-profits) • Non-profit association • Governed by federal and state laws for non-profits • Entire board should read and know what the bylaws say • Bylaws must accurately reflect what the board is doing • No one person on the board makes decisions for chapters; must be by majority vote of the governing body • An affiliate of SHRM – the parent organization • Rules and expectations • Chapter bylaws cannot conflict with SHRM bylaws • Must keep bylaws up to date • Chapter charter outlines the relationship between SHRM and chapter

  9. Changes to Chapter Bylaws • All board members should carefully review the bylaws upon taking office and should follow them as a legally binding document • Bylaws model online – be sure your bylaws include all required sections as stated in the checklist online • ANY bylaws revisions need to be sent to your Field Services Director (FSD) for review • ANY bylaws changes will then be approved by SHRM (including name changes and changes to 100%) • Do not plan your chapter membership vote until AFTER you have received the signed final copy from SHRM

  10. Bylaws Approval Process • Email the complete set of bylaws (marked up copy and final copy) with a bulleted list of the changes to your Field Services Director (FSD).  They will review them and provide suggestions or changes.   • Once they are approved by the FSD, the bylaws are approved by the Chief Membership Officer.   • SHRM signs the bylaws, and then your Regional Administrator (RA) will send them back to you via FedEx with a tracking number.   • Once you receive the package, your chapter membership can then vote on the changes.  Once they are approved, your chapter president should sign and date the bylaws and FedEx (with a tracking number) the signed set back to your RA.  You should keep a copy of them.  The final signed version is placed into the files at SHRM.  This final set is considered to be RATIFIED. The process takes at least 4-6 weeks

  11. Chapter Charters • These documents spell out the relationship between SHRM and chapters • Who owns membership lists • Correct use of the SHRM logo • Correct use of the SHRM name (don’t call your chapter or council SHRM) • Be sure your chapter has a copy; review it annually • If your copy is lost, contact your Regional Administrator

  12. “Affiliate of” logo Please note the change from the TM to the ®; be sure you are using the ® logo Place prominently on all materials produced by an affiliate of SHRM. Do not modify the logo; must be the entire “Affiliate of” logo, and never be smaller than 1 inch wide. Use in conjunction with your chapter logo – same size and near each other

  13. SHRM Requirements • SHRM bylaws require chapter presidents and all state council members be active SHRM members throughout the duration of their term. • Must be indicated in chapter bylaws. • SHRM encourages chapters to require all board members to be SHRM members for greater synergy in the affiliation relationship. • Effectively lead chapter or state council throughout the year and mentor president/president-elect for upcoming year. • Assure bylaws are being followed. • Attend and actively participate in state council meetings.

  14. SHRM Chapter Membership Requirements • For chapters affiliated BEFORE 1/1/04: Minimum of 30% of the total chapter membership or 10 chapter members (whichever is greater) must be current SHRM members • For chapters affiliated AFTER 1/1/04: 25 SHRM members or 51% affiliation (whichever is greater) must be current SHRM members
