This year's location:
In speaking with representatives from the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), this years attendance is higher than last years and they expect a really good conference. If you don't know about the conference, here is a summary of the event taken from the SIA site:
The annual Healthcare Staffing Summit brings CEOs, owners, and senior level executives together to focus on topics of both strategic and tactical interest to the full range of healthcare staffing segments — travel nursing, per diem nursing, locum tenens, and allied medical. It is typically comprised of over 55% CEOs/owners and 90% VPs and above. Attendees listen to and interact with healthcare staffing industry leaders and analysts, gather best practices and proprietary information, and enjoy extensive peer networking.
I am honored to have been asked to be on a panel discussion this year representing Staffing Robot and discussing Social Media Marketing for healthcare staffing agencies. The session is titled "Social Media: No Longer A Hobby" and will take place on Tuesday, September 21st from 1:15 – 2:15 PM (CST). Hinda Chalew, Sr. Vice President of Marketing and Interactive Services for the Staffing Industry Analysts will be moderating the panel. The panel will also include Marc Bowles, Chief Marketing Officer from The Delta Companies and Jim Lanzalotto from Scanlon.Lewis. It's sure to be an interesting discussion so please stop by if you're at the conference.
