ABOUT FMHRAFMHRA is an affiliate chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Established in 1976, our membership has grown to nearly 400 members representing over 200 organizations throughout Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding communities.
SPEAKING OPPORTUNITIESOur monthly chapter meetings typically fall on the first Tuesday of each month. Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. CST, followed by a brief chapter meeting. Presentations are from 12:00-1:00 p.m., with the last 5-10 minutes reserved for Q&As. We also hold bi-annual workshops that last from two to eight hours. These typically fall on the same day as our monthly meetings.
PRESENTATION CONTENTWe strive to offer a balanced program of educational sessions by selecting proposals that best fit within the framework of the SHRM Body of Knowledge Functional Areas (Business Management & Strategy, Workforce Planning & Development, HR Development, Compensation and Benefits, Employee and Labor Relations, Risk Management) as well as our chapter’s educational goals for the year. The FMHRA programming committee evaluates potential presentation submissions and assists in making selections based on topic, speaker credentials and interest. We strongly prefer HR Certification Institute certification of presentations. If your presentation is not HRCI certified, we will submit the program to HRCI for certification at no cost to you.
