As an HR professional, your voice provides a unique perspective that your member of Congress may not have considered. By joining forces with other HR professionals, you directly affect the outcome of pending legislation and regulations. Your actions will ultimately benefit employers and employees all across the nation.
Do I Have To Be a Political Expert?
No. SHRM makes it easy for HR professionals to make a difference, with easy to use tools to help you stay informed and help educate Members of Congress on the issues important to our profession.
How Does It Work?
SHRM members should visit the SHRM Governmental Affairs web page and send an e-mail or letter to your Congressional representatives on any or all of the sample letters that are listed. If you do not know who your member of Congress is, just enter your zip code to find out. Additionally, take a moment to review the legislative fact sheets. Then, be ready to respond to legislative alerts that you may receive from DC SHRM and SHRM. It is that easy.
