The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 250,000 members in over 140 countries, the Society serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession. Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China and India.
As a SHRM affiliate, HRLA encourages our members to join the Society for Human Resource Management. They offer legal information, educational opportunities, tools, publications, networking, special rates and discounts, and many other valuable resources to SHRM members.
For individuals paying US taxes, SHRM annual dues are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes but may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses except that, under IRC Section 162(e), 8% of the SHRM annual dues are allocable to lobbying expenses and are therefore not deductible.
