It is the mission of Imperial Calcasieu SHRM to develop and expand essential partnerships with human resource professionals, our communities and the organizations we serve, to address the evolving workplace, social trends, and human management.

Welcome to the Imperial Calcasieu Society for Human Resource Management.  ICSHRM is the organization for professionals that handle human resources in the five-parish area (Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis, Beauregard and Allen).  ICSHRM is a local chapter affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Whether you are new to the Human Resources field or have many years of experience, we are your resource for networking, information and continuous professional development.  Our partnerships in the community lead to improvement and innovation in HR.

Our organization began in 1983 when local HR professionals began meeting routinely to discuss workplace issues that they were facing.  Some of these issues are relevant today:  hiring, healthcare, minimum wage, employee relations, etc.  ICSHRM is an organization that provides leadership, communication and support to over 200 Human Resource professionals.

I look forward to seeing you at the exciting programs that will be offered throughout the year. From monthly chapter meetings to networking opportunities, our Chapter offers a variety of opportunities for professionals with duties that include recruiting, employee relations, training, benefits, compensation, compliance, analytics, etc. If you are looking for development, support, and a way to advance your profession, then join us. 

I welcome your use of this website as a resource and encourage you to check back frequently for updated information. I would also like to encourage you to visit the pages of this site to see how you can be involved. 

Should you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me at ImperialCalcasieuSHRM@gmail.com.  I look forward to meeting you at our events this year!

Respectfully,

Ashley Ortego, PHR, SHRM-CP, SMC

2021 ICSHRM President
