Welcome to COHR!

The Coastal Organization of Human Resources (COHR) was founded on August 22, 1984 as the Coastal Area Personnel Association (CAPA).  Although the name has changed, COHR continues to provide a means for interchange of ideas, experience, methods, professional development and other matters of mutual interest concerning human resources management.

As an affiliate of the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), the chapter provides educational programs, seminars, networking opportunities, and other professional development activities to Human Resources Professionals along the coast of the Carolinas from southeastern North Carolina to Georgetown, South Carolina.  In addition, the chapter serves the local community through scholarships, programs, and charitable contributions .  Our membership is comprised of approximately 100 members representing a variety of small and large employers of various industries, sectors and backgrounds including: communications, education, finance, government, law, manufacturing and many more.  Through professional services, monthly meetings, and professional accreditation support, COHR members are recognized as leaders in their profession.  We invite you to learn more about our chapter by exploring our website.  You are also cordially invited to attend one of our upcoming events.  To do so simply go to our "Calendar" page and select a meeting day & time and register.    If you have any questions call our "Programs Chair" located on our "Officers" page.  We hope to see you soon!
