About Us

    Our History 

    Chartered on June 9, 1959, the Wabash Valley Human Resources Association has grown to more than 110 active members. We are the second oldest chapter in Indiana and the 22nd oldest out of more than 550 chapters nationwide.

    The Wabash Valley Human Resources Association is governed by a Board of Directors which consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, two immediate active past presidents of the Association and two directors elected at-large by the membership. Several standing and ad hoc committees advise the Board and coordinate special activities and projects, including a Program Committee, Membership Committee, Legislative Committee, Newsletter Committee, Education Committee, and Community Relations Committee.

    We are a local chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) which is the world’s largest HR professional society, representing 285,000 members in more than 165 countries. For nearly seven decades, the Society has been the leading provider of resources serving the needs of HR professionals and advancing the practice of human resource management. SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China, India and United Arab Emirates.  Local chapter members are encouraged to join the National Organization. Information can be supplied by our chapter officers.
