Corporate Discount Membership Program

This program is for companies with three or more employees that would like to be Heart of Texas SHRM members. This is a discount program in which each individual owns their membership rather than a corporate-owned membership. Volume discounts are as follows:

  • 3 to 5 employees - 10%
  • 6 to 10 employees - 15%
  • 11 to 20 employees - 20%

To get started, you must appoint one individual to be the Company Point of Contact (POC) for your employees. The POC should provide a list of participating employee's names and email address to Heart of Texas SHRM (hotshrm@gmail.com). HOT SHRM will then provide instructions directly to each employee about how to activate or renew their membership with the appropriate Discount. Unless otherwise noted, each person will be responsible for how they pay for their membership.  Membership will be activated or renewed upon receipt of payment.
