The SHRM Board of Directors has approved a $9 dues increase for SHRM professional memberships. Beginning January 1, 2017, professional membership dues will be $199 per year. The increase will allow SHRM to continue to develop and improve the HR content, products, and services that the profession has come to know and trust, as well as to invest in additional resources to help SHRM members in the future. Even at $199, SHRM’s annual professional membership dues remain lower than those of other HR-related associations and professional societies. Read our FAQs about the dues increase here.
