WELCOME! Member Registration

RISHRM membership process is digital: New members are able to submit an application directly on our website.  Existing members can maintain their membership information by logging in and updating their account. 

What does that mean for you?  once you sign up, look for an email from us to activate your membership.  It will assign you a username and prompt you to create a password.  You can then review and update your membership information on file immediately and in the future as things change.  Also, all members will now have access to the membership directory.  When updating your account information, you may also control what information other members see.

All existing and new members will continue to receive the same great RI SHRM membership benefits! Please contact with any questions.

Employers are a Part of the Solution to Ending Rhode Island’s Overdose Crisis

The nation’s opioid overdose epidemic is the single greatest public health crisis of our time. In the past five years, we have lost more than 1,400 Rhode Islanders to opioid-related overdose. Governor Gina M. Raimondo established the Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force in 2015 to reduce the number of overdose deaths and save lives.

As a part of this statewide initiative, the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) Drug Overdose Prevention Program is partnering with local businesses and corporations to conduct workplace outreach and education. These free opportunities include:

  • Workshops on overdose prevention and the risks of taking opioid prescription pain medications;
  • Employer toolkits with local treatment and recovery resources;
  • Naloxone administration training and overdose response; and
  • Recovery-friendly workplace initiatives.

To learn more and to schedule an appointment, contact Monica B. Tavares, Education and Outreach Coordinator,, (401) 222-1673.
