Welcome to the Seacoast Human Resources Association


Happy SHRA New Year!

We are kicking off our 2022-2023 Membership Renewal Drive. Everyone who renews their membership by Thursday, June 30 gets to renew at the old rate. Due to increases in overall costs, membership rates will increase as of July 1, 2022. Take action now to lock in your rate!

There is a lot of great programming planned for the upcoming program year and we are so excited to announce we will be meeting in person again at the Portsmouth Country Club! We can't wait to see our SHRA community once again.

Please take a few minutes to renew today. Thank you!


We are an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management. Whether you are new to the HR field or have many years of experience, we are a local starting point for networking, information, professional development and continued support of excellence in Human Resources.

Our Mission:

To enhance the professional growth of our members by advancing the skills and competencies in the field of Human Resources through seminars, workshops, personal contacts and networking.



Our chapter was formed in 1986 as a means of enhancing the professional growth of its members by advancing the skills and competencies in the field of Human Resources, through seminars, workshops and personal contacts. We were granted a charter from the American Society of Personnel in October 1986. That name changed to the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) in 1991.

As a growing chapter of SHRM, we enjoy the support and the wide range of SHRM programs devoted to those engaged in a Human Resources career. Our chapter was awarded the Platinum Award (the highest level of award) from SHRM in 2014 for our continued membership growth and numerous community engagement initiatives.

We welcome your use of this site as a resource, and encourage you to check back frequently for updated information. We also encourage your involvement and suggestions about all of our activities, on the web and off. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting or event!
