NASPE represents the chief directors and chief deputy directors of state government human resource management across the U.S. states and territories. It is the recognized authority on state government human resource issues, trends, practices and policies.

The association offers two types of membership – state and corporate. Membership is renewed annually.

State Membership

Each state government may pay dues to join the association. While the membership is a statewide membership, available to any state government HR professional, the primary contact is the Director of the state’s central human resource management agency, department or division. Sample titles include: Director, Department of Human Resources; Secretary, Personnel Cabinet; Administrator Division of Personnel. These contacts are typically appointed by the Governor, an agency head, or Personnel Board. For more information on State Membership Benefits, visit our Membership Benefits page.

Corporate Membership

Organizations providing products or services to support operations and strategic initiatives for state government human resource management offices across the country may join as a corporate member. Current corporate members represent a number of industries, including software (HRIS, ERP and other); management, technology, and organization development consulting; healthcare; time and attendance systems; recruitment and talent management systems, and others.
