Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ . . . into the Future

Mark DemareeOkay . . . why do I have lyrics to a Steve Miller Band song in the title of this blog post?

A. I like the Steve Miller band.
B. We have an employee at Top Echelon whose name is Steve Miller.
C. Because time is running out for you to take advantage of the “Super Early Bird” Registration rate for the 2011 National Convention.

The answer is all three of these.  However, I’d like to put more emphasis on the third choice for the purposes of this blog post.  “Super Early Bird” Registration ends on Friday, December 31.  If you sign up for the convention before then, the price is only $275 per person.  That’s the lowest price we’ve ever offered for a National Convention, by far.  To put it in perspective, the normal Early Bird rate for conventions in the past has been $495 per person.  The “Super Early Bird” rate for next year is almost half of that.

Actually, the first 50 recruiters who sign up for the convention will be entered into a drawing for a FREE registration.  Once the 50th recruiter has registered, we’ll hold a drawing at the Top Echelon offices, and the person whose name we draw will attend the convention for free!  (Of course, they’ll still be responsible for all hotel and travel expenses associated with the event.)

One of the perks of registering for the convention before the end of the year is that you’ll be able to claim the cost of signing up on this year’s taxes, which is one of the reasons we’re offering a “Super Early Bird” rate.  Another reason is that we want you to attend!  Time after time, it’s been proven that attending events like our National Convention and Fall Conference leads to the strengthening of Trading Partner relationships and ultimately, to the making of more placements.

Yes, attending requires an investment of time and energy.  Yes, we understand that 2010 has been a challenging one for recruiters (as was 2009).  However, from recent conversations that I’ve had with recruiters, the tide seems to finally be turning.  Companies appear more willing to hire the employees that they’ve desperately needed to hire.  All signs point to a more robust 2011.

Get a head start on the new year.  Register for the National Convention at the best price we could possibly offer.  Meet new recruiters, share hot jobs and candidates, form new Trading Partner relationships . . . and most importantly, make more placements.

It all starts in Ft. Lauderdale.  I hope to see you there.

See who’s already registered.
Sign up for the convention.
