The Network’s 2013 Regional Award Winners, Part 1

By MARK DEMAREE, President of Top Echelon recruiting solutions

For the purposes of this award, we break the country up into nine different regions, and the Regional Awards are based upon the Frequent Placer Program (FPP) points that Preferred Member recruiters earn during the course of the calendar year.

Members can earn FPP points in a variety of ways, starting with making split placements.  They can also earn them for telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and meeting other Preferred Member recruiters in person.

Below are the winners of five of the nine regions within Top Echelon Network for 2013.  The top five recruiters in each region are listed, along with the number of FPP points they earned.  The top recruiter in each region will receive an award at the upcoming 2014 National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

If you haven’t yet signed up for the convention, be sure to do so before the end of Early Bird Registration, which is on Friday, February 28.  The price of Early Bird Registration is $495 per person.

In the meantime, below are the winners in five of the Network’s nine regions for 2013.  The winners of the other four regions will be announced next week.
