Welcome to CNY SHRM, Central New York's Premier Human Resource Organization

Central New York Society for Human Resource Management (CNY SHRM) was founded in 1974 and has over 500 members. As an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the Chapter exists to provide a wide variety of professional development and networking opportunities for human resource (HR) professionals in the greater Syracuse area. The Chapter's diverse membership represents more than 300 companies with a range of experience from entry to senior level, across various industries and practices.

We hope that you will join us for one of our programs, whether a breakfast series event, a professional networking event or our annual conference.

In October, Americans observe National Disability Employment Awareness Month by paying tribute to the accomplishments of the men and women with disabilities whose work helps keep the nation’s economy strong and by reaffirming their commitment to ensure equal opportunity for all citizens.

This effort to educate the public about the issues related to disability and employment began in 1945, when Congress enacted Public Law 176, declaring the first week of October each year as National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week. In 1962, the word “physically” was removed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities. Some 25 years later, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to National Disability Employment Awareness Month.1

Take Action:

In October members of CNY SHRM are encouraged to participate. The purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month is to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities.

Held annually, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (“NDEAM”) is led by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, but its true spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation every year. Employers of all sizes and in all industries are encouraged to participate in NDEAM.

For specific ideas about how you and your organization can support National Disability Employment Awareness Month, visit www.dol.gov/NDEAM. Suggestions range from simple, such as putting up a poster, to comprehensive, such as implementing a disability education program. Regardless, all play an important part in fostering a more inclusive workforce, one where every person is recognized for his or her abilities — every day of every month.2
