Kansas Affiliate Chapters
Our primary objective is to support the mission and initiatives of SHRM through education. We coordinate professional development efforts, and serve as the conduit for communication among SHRM, chapters, and at-large members.
There are 11 Kansas SHRM affiliated chapters whose chapter presidents sit on the Council. The state is divided into four geographic districts with district directors who provide support to the chapters in their region.
Core leadership directors represent key areas of focus either for the HR profession or within the association. Some of those areas include:

The Kansas Society for Human Resource Management (Kansas SHRM) has launched a new registered apprenticeship program. Kansas SHRM is recruiting businesses who are willing to have an apprentice enter an 18- to 24-month program during which they will be paired with an experienced supervisor/mentor working in human resources. The mentor will guide the apprentice as they learn on-the-job to perform the responsibilities of an HR specialist and complete the program’s web-based, self-study related instruction. The curriculum is provided by SHRM and additions or adjustments to the curriculum needed to meet individual company’s needs are welcome. For more details, contact Doris Queen.
