GAASHRM MembershipAll facets of the human resource function are represented in the membership of GAASHRM. Members are employed by many Washtenaw County and surrounding area private and public employers, including manufacturing, insurance, banking, healthcare, utilities, education, retail, transportation, government and service. As a member you can gain exposure to a diverse representation of employers.
GAASHRM offers two types of membership:
Professional Membership--open to individuals who are currently employed in the human resources field or retired from positions in human resources. Regardless of your title, if your job function includes human resources or employee relations management, industrial relations, or specialist responsibilities, we would welcome you as a professional member.
Student Membership--open to students engaged in the pursuit of degree program with a human resources course of study. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of six (6) credit hours per semester to join GAASHRM as a student member. Student members are not eligible to vote in chapter elections or hold a leadership position.
Membership is expected to be professional in nature and not to attract individuals joining for the sole purpose of soliciting business.
