At CalSHRM, we believe that our professional community of more than 25,000 SHRM members and the 120,000+ HR practitioners in the state have unique CA-specific challenges and can affect change in California employment by uniting statewide and communicating with One Voice. 

Representing human resource professionals, the California State Council (CalSHRM) is the state affiliate for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).  CalSHRM is a 100% volunteer entity consisting of 16 SHRM affiliated chapters and one organization across the state. Our primary objective is to support the mission and initiatives of SHRM and the California Chapters we support. We coordinate professional development efforts, and serve as the conduit for communication among SHRM and chapters as well as SHRM at-large members
