The American Psychological Association (APA) is the leading scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States, with more than 115,700 researchers, educators, clinicians, consultants and students as its members.
APA’s mission is to advance the creation, communication and application of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people’s lives. The Association encourages the development and application of psychology in the broadest manner. They promote research in psychology, the improvement of research methods and conditions and the application of research findings. They improve the qualifications and usefulness of psychologists by establishing high standards of ethics, conduct, education and achievement. APA increases and disseminates psychological knowledge through meetings, professional contacts, reports, papers, discussions and publications.
HR People + Strategy is the premier network of executives and thought leaders in the field of human resources. As SHRM’s Executive Network, HR People + Strategy provides members access to forward-thinking exchanges, research and publications and executive-level networking opportunities.
Chartered in 1977 as the Human Resource Planning Society, the founders rallied around their desire for an association that would bring people together who were interested in advancing the science and art of human resource management. They were —as they are today—HR professionals, leading academics and trusted advisers. The implied goal was to help people acquire the knowledge and credibility required to play a key role in the design and execution of organizational strategy.
From the start, HRPS was known for attracting top talent to its conferences and workshops. The combination of thought-provoking speakers and educators, coupled with practical lessons from HR executives and experienced consultants, differentiated the society. Various forums provide opportunities for small group discussions and debates on areas of critical interest to the profession.
At these events, and within the HRPS sponsored blogs and discussion groups, all views are welcome. Unlike other professional associations, HRPS has never taken a public stand on any political agenda or piece of legislation. This allows for a diversity of opinion and a level of civility that is refreshing.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest HR professional society, representing 300,000 members in more than 165 countries. For nearly seven decades, the Society has been the leading provider of resources serving the needs of HR professionals and advancing the practice of human resource management.
Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China, India and United Arab Emirates. SHRM provides education, thought leadership, certification, community and advocacy to enhance the practice of human resource management and the effectiveness of HR professionals in the organizations and communities they serve.
