The 2016 Fall Conference may be over. And the 2017 National Convention is yet to come. But you can still engage in face-to-face recruiter networking with your trading partners. In fact, there will be a whole slew of Regional Core Group meetings in the coming months, and the first one is this month in Ohio!
I’m talking about the annual Ohio Regional Core Group meeting. This event takes place every fall in the beautiful city of Columbus. While the city location hasn’t changed, we are moving the meeting to another venue within the city.
Below is the logistical information for this year:
OHIO REGIONAL CORE GROUP MEETING
Wednesday, November 16
3900 Chagrin Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43219
9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m.
$65 per person
Ohio: the heart of it all
This regional core group has been one of the most successful core groups in the history of Top Echelon Network. It has been in operation for several years, as far back as when I started as the Director of Network Operations. (Although at the time, I was called the “Membership Coordinator.”)
If you’d like to attend this core group meeting, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and say, “Please register myself and/or (associate’s name) and charge my credit card on file for $(registration fee).”
Remember, there are four main types of core groups in Top Echelon’s recruiting network:
1. Traditional Core Groups
These are the ones you form yourself by building relationships with other Network recruiters. They typically involve recruiters that work in the same industry and niche that you do.
2. Non-Traditional Core Groups
These are also ones that you form yourself by building relationships with other Network recruiters. However, they’re not necessarily comprised of recruiters that work the same areas that you do. Instead, they’re usually more related to the business side of recruiting or other general recruiting-related topics.
3. Regional Core Groups
These are the ones that involve recruiters meeting face-to-face based upon geographic location (like the Ohio meeting).
4. Virtual Core Groups
During these meetings, Network recruiters share hot job orders and candidates during teleconference calls. They also share information about the activity they’re seeing and ideas for increased production.
If you have questions about any of these groups, please give me a call at 330.455.1433, x156.
