The chapter organizes local events for members at UMUC headquarters in Adelphi. Events are held almost every month and include guest speakers, activities and discussions on current HR topics. Members are welcome to recommend topics of interest for the events. Students are also given the opportunity to network during the UMUC SHRM Chapter meetings with local HR professionals. Our out-of-town members have an opportunity to participate in the meetings remotely.
