About Us

    Connect. Learn. Grow.

    Connect.  The Branson SHRM Chapter provides you the opportunity to network with a variety of skilled human resource and management professionals in the Branson/Tri-Lakes area.  Your participation in the meetings will help you build relationships that will aid you in your ability to direct the human resource functions of your organization.

    Learn.  Each month our meetings target those often tough HR issues.  While your day-to-day work may be chaotic, your association can provide you with a strong foundation of information that is current, vital, and critical to keeping your operation running smoothly.

    Grow.  Our members are exposed to opportunities that can aid in their personal and professional growth.  We share learning experiences, provide access to educational tools, and enhance employment opportunities.
