A NEW HR Magazine for NCSHRM!!!  


HR Professionals Magazine is now the official media sponsor for NCSHRM.  This digital and print magazine is published monthly and replaces our previous relationship with NCHRReview, which was only delivered twice a year.  The new magazine is also an official media sponsor for SHRM National.  We are working with Cynthia Thompson, editor and publisher, to distribute this to all SHRM members in North Carolina, as well as to deliver print copies for distribution at your monthly membership meetings.


In addition to the print copies, the monthly digital issue can be posted on your chapter website.  Here is a link for the July 2019 digital issue.  As you can see, NCSHRM is already getting a lot of visibility out of this new partnership


HR Professionals Magazine also becomes the official media sponsor for the NCSHRM Conference in Hickory, September 25-27.  They will be streaming live from the conference. Sponsors and many of your will be contacted for interviews. In 2018, they received over 7,400 views of their Facebook Live interviews.  See what an interview looks like by clicking HERE


WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!  In order to keep copies of the PRINT edition flowing for your meetings, we need to support the effort with local and regional sponsor ads.  Please let your chapter sponsors know about this exciting new opportunity.  If you or your sponsor board member can provide sponsor contact information, Cynthia can make the ask and answer any questions they may have.  Cynthia’s contact information is below and she has already signed up several NC sponsors.  Let’s use this tool to strut our stuff in North Carolina!!!
