About Our Committee

The Chapter Champion Committee has volunteers from diverse organizations dedicated to delivering creative and interactive ways for CSHRM to give back to the northeast Ohio community at large.  The committee focuses their attention on charitable organizations, and builds awareness for their causes with fun events throughout the calendar year. Our goal is to support our community through outreach and charitable efforts.

We are responsible for:

  • Building relationships and taking an active role with partner nonprofits
  • Organizing and planning the Annual Charitable Silent Auction & Raffle (November) and Annual Charitable Golf Outing & Silent Auction (July)
  • Securing donations and services for the event
  • Communication and marketing efforts for the giving back events with the CSHRM Membership & partner non-profit.
  • Partnering with other CSHRM committees (i.e., Programs, Social, NOHRC, etc)
  • Supporting other committee members with follow through and honoring commitments
  • Enjoying ourself and being passionate about helping others!

Through our efforts we have raised over $85,000.00 over the past 5 years for nonprofit organizations.

How Can I Help?
Getting involved is easy! By attending the Chapter Champion events including the Annual Charitable Silent Auction & Raffle and the Annual Charitable Golf Outing & Silent Auction, you will meet lots of people and volunteer your time for a good cause. You can also network with members of the represented charity organizations and learn ways to volunteer with them on your own! We need your help developing relationships in the community, connecting with area organizations for donations and coordinating and volunteering at events.
