Shenandoah Valley Society for Human Resource Management

Originally founded in 1969 as the Shenandoah Valley Personnel Association and affiliated with the American Society for Personnel Administration, our name changed when the national association's name changed to the Society for Human Resource Management.

Original members included representatives of Dunham-Bush, Metro Pants, and Walker Manufacturing in Harrisonburg; Reynolds Metals in Grottoes; Crompton-Shenandoah and Dawbord, Divisions W.R. Grace in Waynesboro; Alliance Manufacturing in Shenandoah; Celanese Fibers in Bridgewater; Westinghouse in Verona; American Safety Razor in Staunton, and Bonded Fibers and Modine Manufacturing in Buena Vista.

As we celebrate over 40 years of service to Human Resource Professionals in the Valley, the Chapter has grown to nearly 200 members representing over 100 businesses, student chapters, and service industries.


The Shenandoah Valley SHRM will be a locally recognized authority whose voice is heard on the most pressing people management issues of the day--now and in the future:

  1. SVSHRM will provide high-value resources to its membership
  2. SVSHRM will evolve its positioning to become more of an advisor and advocate
  3. SVSHRM will attract and engage all levels of HR practitioners and business leaders
  4. SVSHRM will operate as a financially sustainable organization in order to fulfill its mission for the HR profession
