Greetings Delaware At-Large SHRM Member,

Making your voice heard in our HR community is vitally important, and surrounding yourself with other professionals includes two VERY timely opportunities – two actions YOU will want to complete TODAY.

Action #1 - Being present in our people profession means our At-Large SHRM colleagues can click on the link below and share your thoughts and ideas on how we can keep growing personally, professionally, and within our collective communities.  Your SHRM Delaware State Council (DESC) is excited to hear from you.

Action #2 – Attending our statewide HR conference this November 1st & 2nd provides a unique opportunity to experience results that are un-matched elsewhere where you can take your growth to the next level and build your network of colleagues.  Registering for this conference is as convenient as clicking to register your attendance where you can also capitalize on acquiring the pre-approved 12.25 SHRM/HRCI education credits and experience this fabulous HR Conference event.

Note that your DESC leadership has identified a way for you to maximize both actions listed above by sharing their direct support and involvement into your growth and advancement.  For each Delaware-based At-Large SHRM Member who completes the At-Large survey (link below) by September 30th, your name will be placed into a drawing for one lucky recipient to receive a $250.00 credit toward your 2018 HR Conference registration.

As shared previously, your DESC is interested in learning how we may enhance our support of your SHRM membership and ensure full awareness exists of the two Delaware-based and local SHRM Chapters (DESHRM meetings in New Castle County and DelMarVa SHRM meetings in Kent County).  Take a few moments of your time TODAY and complete the member survey and the conference registration. 

Thank you, Frank Ingraham, DESC State Director

                    Study Group Testimonial
“The SHRM Study Group led by Joanne Lee was the absolute best decision I made when I decided I wanted to become SHRM-SCP certified, and I don’t think I would have passed the exam on the first try without it. The 15-week class is the perfect amount of time to learn and apply all the material covered on the exam, which is contained in four (4) textbooks, each more than 200 pages long. The class provides you with a reading schedule so you know exactly what topics to have reviewed each week, and it’s certainly a way of holding you accountable to complete all the reading, online knowledge tests, and situational judgment quizzes before each session. There is no doubt the test is hard, but the class will help you succeed while still working fulltime and living life because it helps you manage all the content over time and truly learn and apply it to your job every day. Additionally, you get to meet and network with an amazing group of like-minded HR professionals who are just as motivated to succeed and achieve this certification as you are!


Becoming SHRM-certified is quite the feather in any HR professional’s cap! It adds a level of credibility to you as a professional, and specifically to me as an HR consultant. Knowing that they’re speaking to a Senior Certified Professional helps create another level of trust in me as their HR partner. Additionally, SHRM is the HR industry leader, and the content for the SHRM-SCP was more applicable to everyday HR scenarios than other certifications I’ve taken (i.e. PHR). The textbooks are currently on my bookshelf in my office and I’ve already referred back to them multiple times for client inquires. That’s how you know the certification is worth it!”   Maria Clyde, PHR, SHRM-SCP
