The Pay It Forward program is designed to support HR professionals whose jobs have been impacted by the economy. With this program, new members in transition can join Detroit SHRM at the cost of $50. Existing members can assist individuals who would like to join Detroit SHRM by giving a gift of $50 toward membership dues. If you are in the fortunate position to be able to "pay it forward" and help another HR professional to join, you can become involved in this program.

For new members who participate in this program by accepting sponsorship, we ask that you "pay it forward" and sponsor another person in transition once you re-enter the workforce.
