Welcome Letter from the State Council
Welcome to the website for the Minnesota State SHRM Council.  We ARE your go-to resource for “all things HR” in Minnesota!  Our site offers resources and information for members of local affiliated SHRM chapters in Minnesota, at-large SHRM members, and anyone interested in human resources.
2015 was a great year for MNSHRM and 2016 promises to be even better!  Our volunteer leaders attended an AWESOME Leadership Conference in January and are planning our annual State Conference in October. We did strategic planning for the state council and have some exciting initiatives underway. Chapters are hard at work providing education and networking opportunities.   
Information on the chapters throughout Minnesota is available under the Membership tab above.  If you don't currently belong to a chapter, I urge you to check it out.  Chapters provide education, knowledge, and unparalleled networking opportunities.  Chapter membership is separate from national SHRM membership.

Our website calendar lists HR-related events around the State, including chapter meetings and training opportunities. If you would like to add an event to our calendar, submit it to
If you would like to post a Minnesota (or border community) HR job on our website, please go to the Career Center tab.  There is a $50 fee to post a job.
There are no State Council membership fees or dues to access these resources. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to click on "Contact Us." Please take some time to browse our website, investigate our chapters, and learn more about human resources as well as our beautiful land of 10,000 lakes.  Come back often to see what’s new!
Best Regards,
Jamie Janezich
State Council Director
