Regular membership includes Springfield-area professionals whose primary responsibility is in administration of the Human Resources function at any level in the organization they represent, or individuals who have been in the human resources practice for a minimum of 12 months.

Members can choose to pay a low, yearly membership fee per year, or can opt to add on the cost of meeting fees.
A company may register up to five (5) individuals within their company for a full calendar year (January to December). The membership remains with the company for that calendar year, not the registered individuals.
Pre-pay is required for the Corporate Membership registration. There are two options available:
Each individual must still complete the regular membership application and be approved. Simply select "bill me" on the payment option and the invoice will be cleared once payment is received from the Corporate point of contact.
Each Corporate membership will assign one of the registered individuals to be the point of contact. This point of contact will register for the corporate membership and pay the annual fee. Simply, include the names of the 4 other individuals in the "comments" of registration.
3 of the 5 registered individuals can rotate amongst themselves to attend meetings, conferences, professional development sessions and other SAHRA events. Individuals must still register individually for all SAHRA events.
