Buffalo, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo School of Management’s student chapter of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) has earned the SHRM Superior Merit Award.

The award recognizes chapters for outstanding activities and programs that support the professional development of members as well as the SHRM organization and the HR profession. This marks the chapter’s 29th consecutive year of national recognition.

The chapter was recognized for a variety of activities, including hosting a variety of professional speakers and workshops; conducting an interviewing workshop for the school’s Entrepreneurship Training Program for high school students; developing and distributing a résumé book to assist members searching for jobs; publishing a monthly newsletter; and assisting and attending meetings for the Buffalo Niagara Human Resource Association.

“Our SHRM students are to be commended for the quality and scope of their efforts,” said Joseph Salamone, associate professor of organization and human resources in the School of Management and the chapter’s advisor. “Each of them contributes to our chapter’s successes and in so doing displays the skill sets and talents needed for successful careers.”
