Annual LHRMA Student Membership – Student members include members of a SHRM designated college chapter. Membership will be verified with your chapter’s president. Other student members are limited to those individuals who are (1) pursuing a course of learning leading to employment in the human resources field or related profession; and (2) who are not actively employed in a human resources capacity as defined by regular membership. Coursework taken or planned should support an interest in Human Resources Management. Course of learning is defined as the equivalent of at least six (6) credit hours per term in a degree-seeking program. Students will be asked to attest to these criteria before being accepted as a student member of the chapter and annually upon membership renewal. Qualifying student members will not be charged the annual LHRMA dues.
