Welcome to North Texas SHRM,

I’ve been thinking about the first time I came to a North Texas SHRM meeting. I was not sure what to expect, but I discovered that taking advantage of the resources the chapter has available to our members have been invaluable. Whether you are a student learning about HR, entry level HR role, or a seasoned professional, there are constant changes and adjustments that we encounter as HR professionals. Our Executive Board and Core Leadership Area Directors ensure resources are available for our members to be prepared for those changes and adjustments.

Follow us on social media, join us at our monthly education events, quarterly networking events, and our annual conference. We also encourage you to become a volunteer, there are opportunities to get involved in all areas and any amount of time commitment to fit your schedule. If you are not currently a member, I urge you to join today so you can enjoy all the benefits of membership.

I hope to meet you at our events and get to know you,

Dwayne Clarke


2023 President's End of Year Review

As I reflect on the accomplishments of North Texas SHRM in 2023, I am proud of the commitment from our volunteers in advancing our profession. Our success would not be possible without our volunteers and the support of our members. I would like to highlight the successes of our chapter this year and call to action what will be needed in 2024 to continue this success.

Our monthly educational luncheons have increased its average attendance by 34% compared to 2022. Our 2023 Annual Conference increased it attendance by 7%. We are excited to continue providing engaging speakers and intriguing topics to support your professional growth.

The chapter’s passion for advancing the HR profession was the catalyst for launching the NTXSHRM Emerging HR Professionals Program in 2023. The program resulted in 15 mentees and 11 mentors participating. Our Networking with a Purpose events focused on linking our members to one another while providing skills to create valuable connections. We will continue to provide these programs to build meaningful relationships.

North Texas SHRM increased its Net Assets (value) by 14% ($6,880) and does not have any outstanding liabilities. Our financial position allows the chapter to continue an annual scholarship program and maintain low-cost quality programming for all community members.

We partnered with United Way to host a Jobs Search Skills workshop which gave valuable instructions regarding Resume writing, interviewing and personal branding to those seeking employment in the North Texas community. There were 16 attendees for the event and we plan to continue hosting similar events in 2024.

North Texas SHRM exists to serve our members. We increased our membership by 8.5% in 2023. We currently serve 203 members. As we approach 2024, our goal is to continue to provide you with the resources and opportunities to learn, network, advance, and transform our profession. Volunteers are essential to meet that goal. If you are interested in opportunities to advance the mission of North Texas SHRM, I ask that you connect with our Core Leadership Directors and our Executive Board Members Support our events through your attendance and spread the word through your network about valuable resources available through the chapter. I am honored to serve as your President and will continue working to complete the mission of North Texas SHRM.
