SHRM-Atlanta Regional Development Communities - formerly known as Geographic Emphasis Meetings (GEMS) - provide a more intimate setting for additional networking and learning. Our intent is to offer programming in convenient locations across metro-Atlanta whether it is where our members live or work.

We offer RDCs in the following locations:


To view upcoming RDCs, please visit our Calendar of Events.  We invite you to attend any RDC meeting of interest to you!  

RDC Meetings are held four times a year: January, April/ May, September and November. Meetings are typically at lunch or after work. Food & refreshments are included in the registration fee. The meetings are usually a smaller group than our Chapter Meetings enabling people to meet and mingle in a very friendly setting, usually 20 to 40 attendees. Each RDC plans to offer a variety of HR topics and speakers providing diverse programming of interest to all levels of HR throughout the year. Typically RDC presentations are pre-approved by HRCI & SHRM for CEU credits.

Sponsorships are available for each RDC meeting. If your company is interested in learning more about the sponsorship packages, click here.
