    Helena, Montana, March 22, 2016 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded the Montana SHRM State Council its prestigious EXCEL Gold Award for the Council’s accomplishments in 2015.
    The award is part of the SHRM Affiliate Program for Excellence, which aligns individual chapters and councils’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that enhance the human resources profession.
    “SHRM rewards chapters and councils that demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing the human resources profession through service to the community, local networking and professional development activities,” said Henry G.

The Montana SHRM State Council will receive recognition in SHRM publications and conferences, a certificate of recognition, and a special banner to display at its meetings and events.
