Chapter Vision Statement
for 2023-2024

The continued success of WBU SHRM lies in student participation. This school year, chapter leadership will engage students - both members of the chapter and students not members. This engagement will focus on increasing participation in chapter activities and highlight SHRM and the contribution of this chapter to the student body and community. As a SHRM student chapter, I see our continued expansion towards professional development education in mentorships and internships with HR professionals within the Anchorage area. Also, as part of this chapter’s growth and professional exposure, I see sending the maximin number of students to the NHRMA Student Conference, 2023. Finally, I see WBU SHRM striving to achieve National recognition from SHRM through the Merit Award program. To accomplish this vision, student participation is a necessity.
