SHRM – Racine & Kenosha Area Chapter (SRKA) is an affiliated chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). We received our charter in July of 2007 and are well on our way to achieving our objective of being a vital HR resource in the Racine and Kenosha County area. We are committed to serving you, the HR Professional, and to advancing the HR Profession.

Our meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month and the location rotates throughout the Racine and Kenosha area.  Meetings are typically held at breakfast or lunch.  We offer this variety of times and locations to ensure everyone has convenient access to these learning and networking forums. Programming, leadership and other opportunities revolve around the Core Leadership Areas (CLA’s) and we are open to any other ideas from our membership.  Nearly all of our sessions qualify for credit through HRCI and SHRM.
