Individuals who are compensated, or whose employer is compensated, to provide expertise, commodities or personnel which support human resource functions for companies other than their own. Companies of Associate members may purchase a maximum of 4 memberships for their employees. Each membership must be assigned to a specific employee, but other employees of that company may attend HRMA functions in their place at the member price. Assigned employees may be replaced by new assignees up to once per membership per year. Associate members may not vote or hold office in HRMA.
NOTE: Any individual who holds a financial interest in, or serves on the governing body of a company which provides expertise, commodities or personnel which support human resource functions of other companies shall be classified as an HRMA Associate member.
Individuals enrolled in HR disciplines or related fields who do not meet the criteria of other categories. A copy of a valid Student ID or transcript verifying your current status as a student is required. Student members may not vote or hold office in HRMA.
Membership in HRMA does not require membership in a national organization such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) or the National Human Resource Association (NHRA). However, HRMA strongly encourages membership in either or both organizations to take advantage of the resources they have to offer. Both are dedicated to the advancement of personnel and industrial relations management, and both organizations recognize HRCI certification, which HRMA advocates. Applications for membership in either SHRM or NHRA are available through HRMA.
