Recertification Information


Maintaining your credential is a key part of your commitment to your career and your profession. SHRM conferences provide efficient, cost-effective ways to earn recertification credits for a variety of credentials.

The Activity ID for SHRM17 is forthcoming. When it becomes available, you will be able to find it in your onsite program and the conference app. These PDCs will auto-populate into your SHRM Certification Portal if you are a full conference attendee*, approximately one week after the conference concludes. To enable the auto-populate process, your SHRM certification login email address must be the same as your registration email address for this conference.

For more information on recertification and how to enter PDCs, visit

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend that you retain your onsite Conference Guide for your records along with a copy of your registration as proof of your attendance at the SHRM 2017 Annual Conference & Exposition.

*Full conference attendees are those who registered and paid to attend the entire conference therefore one-day registrations, exhibitors and press will not be auto-populated and will need to enter the Activity ID into their portals.
