Educational Foundation Oahu District

Welcome to the SHRM Hawaii Educational Foundation Oahu District

The SHRM Oahu Educational Foundation serves the largest portion of the members in Hawaii with over 450 members on Oahu, of which 145 have either SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP, PHR/SPHR or a combination of both, and 320 are SHRM National members.

With the 2004 merger of all island chapters, the SHRM Oahu Educational Foundation has had the opportunity to partner and network with the other island SHRM Education Foundations on the Big Island, Kauai and Maui and to share resources and coordinate some of our activities.

The SHRM Educational Foundations represent the non-profit arm of SHRM and are responsible for:

  • Facilitating the continuing education of human resource professionals and
  • Providing opportunities for cooperative relationships and exchange of information and ideas among members.

Our focus is to Serve the Professional and to Advance the Profession. The committees within the SHRM Educational Foundation provide wonderful volunteer opportunities for each of you to enhance your knowledge, network with other HR professionals, and to extend educational services to other SHRM members, or to students from elementary to the college level. We invite and welcome you to get involved with one of the following committees:

  • PROGRAM COMMITTEE: This committee coordinates topics and speakers for monthly programs offered to all SHRM members and prospective members. The goals for the monthly program topics are to presenting new "cutting edge” issues, deliver presentations on new or existing employment laws, sharing of resources, best practices in HR as well as reinforcement of some of the HR basics. Our programs are normally scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month and notices are e-mailed to members. Please check the SHRM Hawaii website at for future programs or watch for the monthly program notices sent by an "e-mail blast”.
  • COLLEGE RELATIONS COMMITTEE: This committee works with the student chapter of the University of Hawaii, and other local colleges to educate and encourage the human resources profession.A key focus of this committee is to share with college students the fact that there is a place in HR for everyone, regardless of your major and to bridge the transition from college student to young professional.

The volunteer activities of these committees within the SHRM Educational Foundation have done much to strengthen the name of the SHRM organization, to educate and share resource information with other human resource professionals and to provide support to the students who are the future of our businesses. For the volunteers, one of the most rewarding aspects is often the opportunity to form new friendships with other HR professionals.

We hope that you are or will become a SHRM Hawaii member and that you will contact us to participate in one of the committees listed above. If you would like more information on joining SHRM or are interested in joining one of the SHRM Oahu Educational Foundation committees please contact Bernard Nunies (Email).
