About Us

    NISHRM was formed in 1942 as the Lake County Employment Managers Association. The name was changed to NIAPA in 1979 when the group was chartered as the local Chapter of Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). In 1990, the name was changed again to more accurately reflect the changes that had occurred in the HR profession, and in 1994, the NISHRM name was adapted to better reflect the affiliation with SHRM.

    The individual members of NISHRM represent Lake and Northern Cook counties. Both industrial and service organizations, as well as HR consultants, are represented in the membership.
