SHRM Pinnacle Award

The SHRM Pinnacle Award Program is an annual recognition program honoring the highest achievements in SHRM affiliate development and contributions that serve HR professionals, advance the HR profession and enhance the SHRM community.

In 2011, SAHRMA received its first SHRM Pinnacle Award, in recognition for the Workforce Readiness Initiative - Overcoming Homelessness through Employment Readiness, where SAHRMA partnered with SAMMinistries.

In 2015, SAHRMA had the prestigious honor of again receiving a Pinnacle Award.  Our 2015 Pinnacle Award focused on our efforts with the Transitioning Warrior Workshops alongside Centurion Military Alliance.  As human resource professionals, we worked to help match employers with qualified veterans and thereby strengthen and serve our community. SAHRMA members can continue to volunteer time and talent in support of veterans.  See
