State Council Membership

SHRM wants to help your state council succeed and is committed to helping your state council message to all SHRM members in your state.

Email Marketing: eBlast Form

Take advantage of the eBlast program to reach SHRM At-large members in your state.  SHRM only launches eBlasts on MONDAYS and FRIDAYS so you must select Monday or Friday in your form.  Also, a ten (10) business-day lead time is required for all eBlast requests. eBlast requests will not be accepted or deployed during the following Blackout Dates:

SHRM halts eBlasts for the Federal holidays when SHRM offices are closed. For this year, we will also halt eBlasts from December 14, 2021 to January 6, 2022. Please reference the below guidelines on when to submit your eBlast request.

  • If you wish to have an eBlast deployed by December 13, you must submit your request by December 2. 
  • If you wish to have an eBlast deployed by January 7, you must submit your request by December 14. 

Normally, SHRM halts eBlasts during the 30 days leading up to the SHRM Annual Conference. We are making a modification in 2021 since SHRM Annual had to be moved from June to September 9-12: 

  • For State Council and Chapter events held between August 15 – October 15: Eliminating Blackouts. For any State Council or Chapter conference or major annual event held between August 15 and October 15, we are eliminating eBlast blackouts.
  • For all other State Councils or Chapters that are not holding an event between August 15 and October 15: The blackout period on SHRM-supported eBlasts will begin on Sunday, August 15, and end on Sunday, September 12.

Normal eBlasts will resume on Monday, September 13.
