    This is one of the most exciting times to be a Human Resource professional! There are constant challenges with regards to employment regulations, business partnering, influencing skills, retention, and performance improvement as well as employee engagement. Membership in our Chapter provides you with the tools and resources to continue your professional development; collaborate with other HR professionals; and keep yourself energized.

    Our membership is open to anyone working in or responsible for Human Resources or a related profession.  Although you don't have to belong to our parent group, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), to join JSAHR, SHRM members receive additional services and a JSAHR discounted membership. 

    JSAHR members represent a variety of HR fields and industries in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Emerging Professionals who have been in an HR career for eight years or less are particularly welcome, as we have special networking opportunities available for you.  For additional information about JSAHR's Organization, our Mission, our Programs and our Educational Seminars, please click here: Join Now

    The Membership Committee is proactive in managing the recruitment and retention of the JSAHR Chapter membership. The Membership Committee also works directly with the development and advancement of the Chapter’s Emerging Professional group. Duties also include receiving applications from the Chapter Administrator to contact and discuss membership benefits with potential new members.  Working together with the Chapter Administrator, the Membership Committee will distribute a welcome e-mail and presentation to new members. On a yearly basis, the Membership Committee coordinates the re-enrollment of members and payment of annual dues.
