Welcome to the Seacoast Human Resources Association


We have reached the end of our 2020-2021 program year, and we're feeling incredibly grateful for our Seacoast HR community and the partnerships we've engaged in over the past 12+ months. Thank you for joining us in adapting to a virtual environment and helping your fellow community members through a challenging time.

We are excited to be planning our first in-person gathering in over a year! Our annual Member Appreciation Event will be held on Thursday, September 9 from 5 to 7PM at the Wentworth by the Sea Country Club in Rye.

Any members who are interested in participating in the event as a non-sponsor can do so by donating a $50 raffle item. Please reach out to Fran Lefavour about sponsorships and raffle donations by email at or by phone at 603-659-6133.

There will be no September program as the HR State Council will once again partner with the Vermont State Council to hold a virtual Twin State HR Summit in September. It is our hope to resume in-person monthly programming starting in October.

We'll continue to share Chapter news, legal updates, educational webinars, and other resources via regular email blasts throughout the summer months. Take a minute to check the email address in your Member Profile so you don't miss an update! You can also visit our social media pages to stay connected to the SHRA community. Stay tuned, stay safe, and be kind - we can't wait to see you again this fall.

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!
