The 2015 Top Echelon Network National Convention will be here before you know it . . . because it always gets here before we know it!

Actually, the dates of this year’s convention are Tuesday, April 14, and Wednesday, April 15.  The location is the Embassy Suites Centennial Park in Atlanta, Georgia.

This is the first time that we’ve held a National Convention in Atlanta, and we’re excited about the potential and the possibilities that the venue holds.  In fact, we have an article from that presents “6 Reasons to Love Atlanta.”

Those reasons are as follows:

  1. The food is fantastic.
  2. The music is excellent, too.
  3. Neighborhoods make the city.
  4. The history is groundbreaking.
  5. The arts reach beyond big-city museums.
  6. And there are places to visit on foot.

The article goes into detail to describe all that the city offers, including attractions like the Georgia Aquarium, the College Football Hall of Fame, and the World of Coca-Cola.

Let’s not forget restaurants such as Gunshow, FLIP Burger, The Spence, Empire State South, The Optimist, and No. 246.  And those are just for starters.

I encourage you to read the article, and of course, I also encourage you to attend the National Convention.  In fact, below are four reasons why you’ll love the convention:

  1. You can network with other recruiters in your niche and gain new Trading Partners.
  2. You can see current Trading Partners that you haven’t seen in a while and reconnect, spend time together, and have fun.
  3. Keynote speaker Shally Steckerl is going to share his latest and greatest candidate sourcing tips.
  4. Top Echelon’s Todd Bossler, Hannah Laps, Drea Codispoti, and Debbie Fledderjohann will show you how to leverage the resources in the Network to make more placements this year.

So that’s 10 reasons overall!  (Actually, there are more than 10, but 10 is a nice, round number.)

Remember, this is the lowest price we’ve ever offered for a National Convention, and you can sign up in the Members’ Area.

We hope that you’ll join us in Atlanta.  We’d LOVE to see you there.

We’ve provided proof on previous occasions that Regional Core Groups in Top Echelon Network result in split placements between Preferred Member recruiters.

And we have more proof this week!

The Regional Core Group in question is the Central Ohio Regional Core Group, which meets every year in Columbus for networking, training, and sharing hot job orders and candidates.  Once again, that meeting was able to help recruiters make placements, and one of those placements is detailed below.

One of the reasons I’m highlighting this placement is the upcoming Midwest Regional Core Group meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, February 11, at the Potawatomi Inn Resort in Angola, Indiana.  The Midwest Regional Core Group includes recruiters from Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio, but by no means is it restricted to just those states.

You can do the following at this event:

  • Meet with Top Echelon Trading Partners to build money-making relationships
  • Lean new ideas from one another’s experiences
  • Learn all about the new MEGA Database sharing software (from yours truly)

The cost to attend is $35 per person.  If you’re interested, I encourage you to contact me to reserve a seat.  You can do so by calling 330.455.1433, x156.

There are more events like this throughout the year.  If you aren’t able to attend one of them, maybe you can start one.  Regional Core Groups help recruiters make placements!

“Although we have made a split with Doug Boyce before (2007), this placement was a direct result of attending the Central Ohio Regional Core Group meeting on November 12, 2014.  Fortunately, we were able to spend time with Doug during the meeting and promote the jobs that we were working on.  We are totally energized by the opportunity to network with other recruiters face-to-face at conferences and Core Groups.  It is amazing to me the synergy that is started and the GREAT results that we attain.”
