2016 Funding – Why Your Chapter May Have Received a Check!
If your chapter has received a check in the mail and are wondering where that came from, here is the SHRM chapter funding calculation for 2016.
As a part of the CFSP program, eligible chapters in good standing receive a portion of each primarily coded professional (non-student) SHRM national member’s dues. Primarily coded means the member has chosen your chapter as their primary chapter. Members can belong to more than one chapter but only have one “primary.” This financial support is provided during the year, via a quarterly payment for 100% chapters (those chapters who require all members to be members in good standing of SHRM) or a twice-a-year payment for non-100% chapters.
2016 4th Quarter CFSP & Net Gains Payment are calculated as follows:
Chapter Financial Support
$6.25 for each professional SHRM members primarily coded to the chapter as of December 31, 2016.
$5.00 for each professional SHRM members primarily coded to the chapter as of December 31, 2016.
Net Gain Payments
Calculated by subtracting the 12/31 national membership total for last year from the 12/31 national membership total for the current year and multiplying the difference by $25.00.
Additionally, your chapter also receives a SHRM Certification payment within the same deposit. This payment is calculated based on the number of SHRM members primarily coded to the chapter who are SHRM-certified as of December 31, 2016. We hope this program has aided the efforts of chapters to roll out, support and promote the SHRM competency-based certification and recertification.
2016 SHRM Certification Payment for chapters is calculated as follows:
$20 payment for every current SHRM national member primarily coded to the chapter with either their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP as of 12/31/16.
