Prince William SHRM INC
In October 2008, a group of 58 professionals within the greater Prince William County area met to discuss the potential of a local SHRM chapter. Our founding members recognized the urgency for a local human resources networking forum as corporate and individual migration westward continued from the Washington DC metropolitan area. Prince William SHRM Inc. was formed as a non-profit corporation on May 11, 2009.
