NEMSHRA Mission: We provide opportunities for exchange of information among our members and promote the educational development of Human Resource professionals, aiding in their effectiveness in all phases of Human Resource Management and Administration.

Welcome to the Northeast Mississippi Human Resource Association web site. As an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), we support a diverse group of Human Resource Professionals in Northeast Mississippi in their role as strategic business partners. We strive for our monthly chapter meetings to provide continuing education in the ever-changing field of Human Resources and encourage chapter involvement in the community around us.  We promote the continued learning and practice of the HR body of knowledge to further our companies mission and strategic goals.

Whether you are new to the HR field or have many years of HR experience, we are a local starting point for networking, information, professional development and continued support of excellence in Human Resources.

One of our biggest objectives is to offer monthly meeting content that has been approved for continuing education or recertification credits. Northeast Mississippi Human Resource Association is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP. It also submits approval by HRCI for continuing education credits for HRCI's PHR and SPHR.

We welcome your use of this site as a resource, and encourage you to check back frequently for updated information. We also encourage your involvement and suggestions about all of our activities, on the web and off.

Our chapter is a 100% SHRM chapter, which indicates that all of our members are members of the national SHRM organization. We do encourage local professionals who are not a SHRM member to periodically attend our monthly meetings as guests, and hope that you will be encouraged to become a member of SHRM.   If you are new to our area, we invite you to attend, and move your SHRM affiliation to our local chapter.

We invite you to browse our web site for information about our local chapter, our state chapter, and the national organization. In addition, our web site provides a list of current officers, chapter history, chapter goals, and monthly programs.

If you are not an active member of our local chapter and SHRM, we invite you to join. You may join SHRM on-line by visiting their web site at If you need additional assistance or have specific questions, please feel free to contact me at 662-680-2579 during normal business hours.

We hope you enjoy your visit on our web site and that you will join our HR Professionals organization.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting or event!
