Matt Bello - My involvement in the SHRM Lehigh Valley Chapter has really come through with my expectations of knowledge and networking which are my two reasons for participation in the group. The seminars provide timely real world HR knowledge while the selected speakers are always engaging. It’s good to have access to such a local HR resource in the Valley. The meetings are usually quite well attended which provides many opportunities for networking. I’ve met people from small businesses to large companies and everything in between.

Colleen Albright - The local SHRM Lehigh Valley Chapter has provided me a fantastic opportunity to connect & network with other Human Resources Professionals. I make the most out of my membership by attending monthly meetings 7 seminars whenever possible and I have never been disappointed. Not only are the topics current and on point, but I get continuing education credits and often walk away with applicable information I can use day-to-day in the field of HR. In the past two years I have become more involved with the local chapter by volunteering on the Membership/Marketing Committees, as well as the Legal Conference Committee. I look forward to many more successful years with this chapter. 

Jennifer Emanuello - As a long time SHRM National Member, I have been involved in various local HR Associations, but I have gained the most value and strategic HR insight from the SHRM Lehigh Valley Chapter. They are an outstanding Chapter with a strong Member base of established HR Leaders in the Valley who are actively engaged in networking with fellow Members. SHRMLV always provides diverse Programs and Seminars presented by Industry Leading HR and Legal Professionals on current and upcoming HR trends in the industry. Their annual 2-day Fall Conference is not to be missed since it keeps getting better every year!  Jennifer Emanuello

Mike Dragun - The SHRM Lehigh Valley Chapter is without question one of the finest HR Groups I have been associated with during my 20 year career. The membership is active, the meetings are well attended, and the topics are always current and on point. The Chapter's Seminars have saved me a great deal of time and travel by having the highest quality speakers that one would normally have to travel to see and hear. The material is always practical for my profession and legally current.
