    History

    The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), formerly called the American Society for Personnel Administration (ASPA), was founded in 1948 by a group of just 28 individuals who anticipated the need for a national personnel organization. The goal in founding ASPA was to provide continued professional development opportunities for what the founding members recognized as a profession in transition, promote national networking, and to generally advance the interests of the profession.

    The Michiana Chapter was established in 1957 to provide educational and networking opportunities to all individuals involved in HR-related activities or professions. We are committed to advancing the profession and serving the professional through some of the most up-to-date HR information & educational tools available.
