Advocacy

SHRM members can make a difference. SHRM provides a number of resources to assist in advocacy efforts including:

  • Day Inside the Beltway.  The Day Inside the Beltway (DITB) program provides SHRM members the unique opportunity to travel to our Nation’s capital for a day of legislative and regulatory meetings and briefings. Activities include meeting with the staff at SHRM's headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, where staff briefs the members on the issues they will be discussing during their visits to Capitol Hill, as well as how to conduct an advocacy meeting with a legislator or their staff.

    SHRM's Member Advocacy Specialist will pre-arrange your meetings on Capitol Hill, as well as accompany you on your visits. Meetings are scheduled for you to visit the offices of your two senators, as well as your member of the House of Representatives.

  • Day Inside the District.  The Day Inside the District (DITD) program is a local initiative that provides an opportunity to generate interest and support of issues important to the HR professional on a federal and state level.

    SHRM's DITD program affords members the opportunity to organize a variety of in-district meetings with legislators - whether it be at a Town Hall Meeting with the legislator in a nearby venue in their home district, a face-to-face meeting in their district office, or a Capital Day when a state legislator is performing their duties while the state legislature is in session.

  • The SHRM Advocacy Team is a crucial component of SHRM’s advocacy efforts, and works with you to advance the interests of the HR profession at both the federal and state levels. Members of the SHRM Advocacy Team join the ranks of other HR Advocates committed to moving the HR profession forward, and become the voice of our profession.
