2018 Updates:

 

JOIN THE SHRM ADVOCACY TEAM

SHRM’s Government Affairs department launched a new member advocacy initiative in 2010. Referred to as the Advocacy Team (or A-Team), this member-involvement program seeks to establish a SHRM advocacy leader in each of the 435 congressional districts throughout the country.

In brief, these leaders, known as Advocacy Captains, will be responsible for establishing a relationship with their federal legislator locally within the congressional district in which they reside. The A-Team is being rolled out in a series of target states launched each year over the next five years.

SHRM’s Government Affairs staff has been conducting in-person and online training sessions for each A-Team target state, educating SHRM members about how to establish and build relationships with legislators, while also sharing SHRM’s stance in regard to policies that impact the HR profession. So far, nearly 250 SHRM members have volunteered to join the A-Team as either Advocacy Captains or HR Advocates.
