SHRM Student Chapter Receives Honorable Mention Award

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2013-2014 Honorable Mention Award designation to the Argosy University, Online Programs SHRM student chapter for providing exceptional growth and development opportunities to its student chapter members.

SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 professional and 19,000 student members in over 140 countries, the association serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession.

“SHRM is pleased to announce our 2013-2014 Student Chapter Merit awards. We are very proud of what our student chapter members are able to accomplish while also involved in their studies and work,” said Laurie McIntosh, director of member engagement. “Their efforts to enhance their chapter, community, and the HR profession are to be commended.”

Chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, which ran from April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014. The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, exists to encourage development of more effective student chapters and to promote outstanding activities and projects by student chapters in the following areas: student chapter requirements, chapter operations, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession, and SHRM engagement.

The Argosy University, Online Program SHRM student chapter will be recognized in SHRM’s publications and at its conferences.
