NOVA SHRM stands for the Northern Virginia chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Since being chartered in 1979 with just 14 members, the chapter has grown to nearly 700 members today. The chapter is an affiliate of The Society for Human Resource Management (www.shrm.org), the premier HR professional organization representing over 200,000 members worldwide. NOVA SHRM is a 100% chapter, which means that we limit our membership to those HR professionals who are members of SHRM. Today, we are one of the largest 100% chapters in the United States.
