Welcome to the Seacoast Human Resources Association


Professional events across the country continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The SHRA Board of Directors has been closely monitoring the situation in New Hampshire, and has decided to hold virtual meetings for the duration of the 2020-2021 program year. These programs will be offered at no cost for current Chapter members, and a reduced cost of $20 for non-members. We are also partnering with our fellow NH Chapters to offer free or reduced-cost meeting attendance for all NH Chapter members. A list of participating Chapters and their attendance costs can be found here.

We'll continue to keep in touch in the coming days to share Chapter news, legal updates, educational webinars, and other resources to help you in these uncertain times. Take a minute to check that the email address in your profile is correct so you won't miss an email update! You can also visit our social media pages to stay connected to the SHRA community. We encourage you to remember our Community Partner, Haven NH, and reach out to them if you're looking for a way to help others stay safe right now. Stay tuned, stay safe, and be kind - we're all in this together, and we can't wait to see you again.

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!

If you have any questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!

We are honored to be working with Haven NH as our current Community Partner!

Please take a few minutes to visit their website and learn about their mission, plus ways you can get involved with their organization.

Haven has an ongoing need for donated gas cards, COAST bus passes, and gift cards to grocery and drugstores in small denominations ($10 - $50). Gift cards like these allow clients who are getting back on their feet to travel to appointments, school functions, and work, and to make choices - often for the first time - about what foods and goods they want to purchase for themselves and their children. You can contact Haven directly to find out the best way to get gift cards to their organization while practicing social distancing.

Thank you to our Website Sponsor, ConvenientMD!
