Advocacy is a critical component of HR leadership positions. Government regulations affecting the workplace continue to proliferate. SHRM wants to ensure that our national and state legislators understand the effect that proposed legislation can have on our workplaces. SHRM requests that chapters appoint an “A-Team” (Advocacy Team) representative for each US congressional district.

RSHRM’s A-Team may participate in “SHRM day at the Capitol” and lead a group of members to visit our US and/or State legislators: 4-16.

This Committee typically meets briefly each quarter to plan advocacy efforts for the following quarter.

The Committee will assist the Committee Chair who functions as the point person for SHRM’s Advocacy Team efforts and serves as a liaison to national SHRM.

The Committee will keep chapter members updated on proposed legislative issues affecting the workplace through RSHRM’s website and through RSHRM’s social media outlets.

The Committee may organize a member trip to the state and/or US capital to meet with legislators to ensure understanding of SHRM’s position on pending legislation affecting the workplace. This is often done in conjunction with other SHRM chapters in Virginia.
