About Us

     


    Thank you for your interest in Greater Pottstown SHRM.  Our chapter prides itself in working with host speakers that are of interest to the group.  We know that you will be joining us during the work day and need to justify your time away from the office.  Each speaker is carefully selected so that you take away new knowledge that will transfer into a business setting.

    Our meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month at noon at Brookside Country Club in Pottstown.  We would love to have you join us for our next meeting!

    Why not come visit with us and see what you are missing!  After you join as a new member, your first luncheon is our treat!
