My Opinions of SHRM Membership

Table of Contents

Earlier today, SHRM announced their Blog Squad for the 2010 National SHRM Conference, and I was humbled to be included along with four other savvy, experienced, and influential Human Resource bloggers.  They are pretty awesome and I highly recommend you check ‘em out.

The SHRM Blog Squad

  • David Bowles, Ph.D., co-author of Employee Morale: Driving Performance in Challenging Times and blogger at Morale at Work.
  • Rachel Salley, SPHR, an HR consultant and blogger with Musings From the Career Anarchist.
  • Matthew Stollak, Ph.D., SPHR, assistant professor of business administration at St. Norbert College and blogger at True Faith HR.
  • April Dowling, SPHR, HR Generalist, active member of the Birmingham SHRM Chapter and blogger at PseudoHR.

My Opinions of SHRM Membership

Most of you are probably aware of some of my very public and recent opinions, feelings, and thoughts surrounding SHRM, the professional organization with whom I have been a member for almost 10 years. (and if you don’t, please read “I Dare You, SHRM. Convince Me.”)  After the blog post, I had a lot of phone calls and conversations with people both for and against.  Because of that and my own personal reflection about change, leadership, the future of the HR industry, and my own voice, I made what I felt was an important decision.  So when I heard about the opportunity to participate in the SHRM blog squad, I was skeptical and curious.  Curious enough to renew my lapsed SHRM membership to apply for the Blog Squad opportunity.

And so here I am.  SHRM had the guts to look past the snarky comments, strong words, and social media square dance to invite me along for the ride, and I can’t wait.

  1. I look at the five selected bloggers and don’t see a lot of folks out there in the trenches, dealing with the issues that many folks do, day in and day out.

    1. Dave,

      Agree. I think there is one full-time practioner among us. I, myself was in corporate just 8 months ago as a full time HR Director. I think the problem lies that it’s hard for a practioner to get the sign off from corporate to write a blog. Companies and business owners are still extremely scared. I know my old employer, watched my every move and although I never mentioned them and they were terrified.

      Wondering if you are a practioner and blogger, Dave. If so, I’d love to have you guest post about this topic.

  2. I am really looking forward to what you, Matt and April will have to say. It must be an honor to be selected from so many talented HR bloggers. See you in a couple of weeks.
