The Network’s 2012 Regional Award Winners, Part 1

Now that we’ve announced the Top 10 recruiters in Top Echelon Network for 2012, let’s move on to the Regional Award winners.  (Awards are fun, are they not?)

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.

Top-Producing RecruitersMembers 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 2012.  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 2013 National Convention in St. Petersburg, Fla. in April.

Which reminds me . . . have you registered for the convention yet?  Sign up now during Early Bird Registration.  (This is our 25th anniversary convention, so you can believe it will be one of our best events ever.)

Below are the winners in five of the Network’s nine regions for 2012.  The winners of the other four regions will be announced next week:
