Important SHRM chapter designation information for LKNHR members!

National SHRM members, please designate LakeNormanHR, Inc. as your local SHRM affilliate chapter (Chapter #0756).  Here's why: LKNHR receives support from SHRM based on how many LKNHR National SHRM members designate us as their local chapter. The more support LakeNormanHR receives from SHRM, the more benefits are passed on to you. For LKNHR to remain as an affiliate SHRM chapter, at least 50% of our members must be national SHRM members. Your support can help us achieve these two goals. Just click HERE and complete the online for m. It's that easy!
