Sometimes you need a friendly reminder . . . and we’re here to give you one!

That friendly reminder is about the 2013 National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) Conference, which is scheduled for Tuesday, September 10, through Friday, September 13.  The location: the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This year’s jam-packed event will feature a number of benefits for executive recruiters.  Those benefits include the following:

  • 20 of the recruiting industry’s leading speakers
  • CPC, CTS, and CERS certification sessions
  • Networking lunches
  • Fast-track speaker breakouts
  • An “Owner/Manager Special Day” embedded within the conference!
  • And a whole lot more!

We’re pleased to announce that Hiring Hook recruitment website design and Big Biller recruitment software are both sponsors of this year’s NAPS Conference!

The cost to attend the 2013 conference is $795 for NAPS members and $1,195 for non-members.  However, recruiters are encouraged to contact NAPS to inquire about special pricing and payment plans.

Since its inception in 1961, NAPS has built a reputation as being the educator for the executive search and staffing industry.  NAPS has accomplished this not only through its annual conference, but also through its certification program and emphasis on continuing education.

We’ll see you in Vegas!  Be there or be square!

At Top Echelon , we’re big fans of continuous training and development.  That’s one of the reasons we offer a free recruiter training webinar every month.

Indiana Search and Staffing Association LogoHowever, we also like to promote industry events in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, and that includes the 2013 Indiana Search and Staffing Association (ISSA) Conference, which is scheduled for Thursday, May 16, at The Pyramids in Indianapolis, Ind.

The keynote speaker for the event is Bob Marshall of TBMG International.  Marshall is presenting two sessions during the conference.

The first session, to be held in the morning, is called “Your Desk as a Manufacturing Plant.”  The second session, slated for the afternoon, is titled “Establishing Elegant Rapport Through Elegant Communication.”

(Marshall is also one of three speakers at the 2013 Top Echelon Network National Convention in April.  However, his session at the National Convention is different than the ones he’s presenting at the ISSA Conference.)

The full-day ISSA program is designed for all recruiters, staffing professionals, human resource professionals and sales professionals.  The main conference includes continental breakfast and lunch provided by Monster.

The cost of attending the ISSA Conference is $99 for members and $129 for non-members.  For registration information, contact Jennifer Fahlsing at (800) 658-0824 or via email at
