SHRMingham is BSHRM's source for news, notes and opinion on how to maximze your talent.


Who are we? The Birmingham Society for Human Resource Management (BSHRM) is the local chapter of the national Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). We've been around since 1943 and we're one of the biggest local chapters of SHRM in the nation.

In addition to all the things you expect out of a chapter like ours (Programs, Certification, Networking Opportunities, etc.), we're interested in connecting our members and sharing ideas and opinion about all aspects of managing HR and talent in your organization.

That's what this blog is about. I'm the editor of the blog, so I'll be writing as much as necessary in an effort to stir things up. I'll also be asking our board members and other talented HR pros I know to write for this space as well. But that's not enough. Having a conversation takes at least two people.

That's where you come in. How can you get involved in the conversation? First, we are always looking for voices from our chapter to share their thoughts and opinion on anything related to HR and Talent that moves you. Email us, [email protected], what you want to talk about. We'll provide space on this interactive format for you to share your thoughts, experience and opinion.

Writing a short column for this space seem too heavy for you? No problem, you can still be involved. Simply hit the "comments" link at the bottom of each post. When you do that, you'll be taken to an area where you can give your thoughts on the topic without feeling the formal pressures of being an author.

You don't even have to provide your name if that concerns you. That's how much we want to interact with you and get access to your expertise.

See the right hand column of the blog for options to subscribe to this blog in a reader (examples - Google Reader, MyYahoo) or via email. That way you don't have to remember to go out and see what's going on - it will be delivered to you automatically...
