Join Us at the NAPS Conference Next Month!
At Top Echelon, we’re advocates of continuous education and training . . . which makes us big fans of the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) and its annual conference!
This year’s NAPS Conference is scheduled for Wednesday, September 19, through Saturday, September 22. The location will be the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas.
Four tracks anchor this year’s lineup of speakers: (1) Direct-Hire Back to Basics, (2) The Direct-Hire Master’s Program, (3) Temp Staffing, and (4) Best Practices and Technology. Running concurrently with the event on Friday afternoon wil be the owner and manager’s retreat, as well as an executive leadership track.
Due to the success of the 2011 event, NAPS will hold a Wednesday evening “Kick-Off Event and Keynote” with Danny Cahill. Jon Bartos, Joanie Ruge, and Jim Bleech will each host the morning keynotes. Overall, there will be four days of education and networking from 25 speakers presenting over 45 sessions.
In addition, there will be two pre-conference credentialing/educational specials. These include NAPS’ well-known certification programs (CPC and CTS), as well as its new CERS (Certified Employee Retention Specialist).
Not only that, but during the Thursday evening party, there will be a live band, a mechanical bull riding contest, and a live auction complete with a Texas auctioneer. (Now, really . . . how can you beat THAT?)
NAPS has been the staffing industry educator since 1961 and enjoys its reputation as the oldest industry association. It continues to maintain the position as the search and staffing industry educator through its certification program, continuing education initiatives, eLearning, and annual conference.
We’ll be there for the 2012 NAPS Conference—and we hope you will be, too!
