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 share Chapter news, legal updates, educational webinars, and other resources via weekly email blasts. 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. We encourage you to remember our Community Partner, Big Brothers Big Sisters of NH, and reach out to them if you're looking for a way to help others in these challenging times. 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!
