About Us

    ICSHRM is a non-profit organization designed to serve the needs of Human Resources professionals within the Imperial Calcasieu area.  Our membership of over 200 members is made up of over 90 organizations in the fields of manufacturing, law, healthcare, banking, communications, local government, staffing agencies, and many more. 

    ICSHRM is an affiliate of Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world’s largest association devoted to the Human Resource profession.

    Local chapter membership, in conjunction with national SHRM membership, provides the well-rounded HR professional with extensive networking, programming and learning opportunities. ICSHRM hosts monthly meetings to educate our members on current HR concerns.

    ICSHRM also hosts an annual HR conference where industry leaders and HR professionals share their knowledge and proven practices with members and the community.  The annual conference is open to anyone interested in attending.

    In addition, ICSHRM works closely with McNeese State University’s SHRM student chapter.  ICSHRM fosters future Human Resources Professionals by awarding a scholarship to a deserving student.
