2018 Event Descriptions

Midwest Staffing Conference- May 10th, Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, IL

The Midwest Staffing Conference, held in partnership with WASS, is one of the largest regional staffing events held each year. This conference is typically a two day event that covers a number of topics relevant to the industry, including social activities before and after the event. The conference is held in the Chicagoland suburbs and the attendance has been growing over recent years, with 2017’s attendance reaching 200 staffing individuals. The conference is optimized to provide strong support and awareness for our sponsors.

Owners Retreat/Symposium

The Owner’s Retreat/Symposium is a 1-2 day conference with topics catered to staffing and recruiting firm owners and executives. The 2017 Retreat was held in New Buffalo, MI and brought 40+ attendees to a beautiful setting that included learning sessions and wine tasting/dinner social events. The 2016 Symposium was a one day event held at the Career Builder Headquarters and had 70 patrons in attendance. Sponsors in this event, can take advantage of having a well-targeted audience with a great opportunity to showcase their offerings.

Member Appreciation Event

Each year, ISSA holds an exciting event for the members of the association. This includes both the members and sponsors that contribute in making the association a great organization to be a part of. Previous events include roof top Cubs games, Arlington Park Race Course and a Pinstripes Bowling/Bocce outing. The intent of this event is to have fun, network and get to know the membership at a deeper level. These events typically sell out early. Attendance for the membership appreciation outing has usually ranged from 40-100 people, depending on the activity.

Client/Owner Panel and Holiday Party

The client/Owner panel is always one of our best events. The event is a late afternoon, into the evening event that includes a high profile panel of contingent labor/direct hire buyers/Staffing Firm Owners from well-known organizations. The panelists get a chance to tell the audience about their experiences as owners or expounding on the dos and don’ts of placing talent into top global organizations. The audience also has a chance to ask questions to the panel in this open and communicative setting. The attendance for this event has ranged from 50-80 people.

Young Professionals

In 2016, ISSA created a new committee targeted at young professionals in the recruiting and staffing industry. The charter of this committee is to attract, educate and network with young staffing and recruiting professionals within the Chicagoland area. ISSA has held 2 previous events for the young professionals group and the attendance ranged from 30-40 individuals. Typically, these events are set as learning opportunities, coupled with a social activity. As this committee continues to grow, we expect the attendance to increase for these events.

Website and Communications

ISSA highly values its sponsors and members. Communication, awareness and social engagement is at the top of the list of priorities for the Board of Directors. With that said, ISSA takes great measure to communicate to its audiences the involvement of its sponsors and how they positively impact their lives and businesses. The ISSA website traffic has been growing year over year and our web properties, including social, continue to grow a strong following.
