Annual Event from our friends at the Central Oklahoma Chapter - ATD


The OCHRS Board of Directors  set the dues for 2016 and the meal prices for both Chapter Members and non-members.  The good news is there was no price increase for memberships or meals.

For those that are SHRM members, the annual membership rate will be $75 per year through December 2016.

For those that are not SHRM members, the annual membership rate will be $100 per year through December 2016.

Meal prices will remain unchanged for 2016 at $25 for chapter members, $40 for non-chapter members and $9 for SHRM student chapter members.  There is one new change for meal prices.  For those that do not pre-register for the meal, the fee will be $40 at the door regardless of membership status.  Registration for a monthly meeting always closes at 12 noon on the Tuesday before the meeting and a waiting list is started.

The lunch bundle price for 2016 is $250.  This covers the ten monthly meals and the chapter membership fee is waived regardless of SHRM membership status.  In addition, the Lunch Bundle member can always send a substitute to the meeting at no additional charge.  Registration to the luncheon is still required.


Membership Dues for 2016 are now being accepted!
