This event is free and there are multiple dates available. Each event will have a slightly different focus and we'll provide lunch.  What’s the Chapter Roundtable, you ask? It’s a gathering of liked-minded folks from chapter-based associations that all face similar challenges. We’ll be discussing ideas and solutions around the following topics: Measuring and increasing the health of chapters and how it can be done Best practices for chapter operations (volunteer tools, processes, etc.) How to get the right statistics which will help prevent members, at both the national and chapter level, from leaving We’ve heard consistent feedback that those in the chapter community want and need a place to network with other component relations professionals. The idea is to make this a collaborative jam session with real-life solutions and resources provided as takeaways. As this is primarily a networking and learning event, please don’t forget to bring business cards to share with your peers.  And to make this event a win-win for everyone, we ask that you only attend if you currently work at an association with chapters.

Or maybe you thought it was in the bag and then "poof, your candidate is dust in the wind and you are left wondering why. Many people associate closing with the offer stage of the recruitment process, but it is effected by the ripple of communication that begins the first time a candidate encounters you or your company. Perri will illustrate important foundational communication concepts she learned as a seven figure, retained executive recruiter, that are many times lost in the today's high tech, low touch world. Whether you are an industry veteran or a new recruiter, you will walk away with a fresh perspective on the impact of your communication and actionable takeaways.  9:45 – 10:15   Welcoming Our Sponsors 10:15 – 11:00  Break 11:00 – 12:00: Breakout Sessions Track: Back to Basics The Candidate Crucible  Neal Anders | CTO | ZeroedIn Technologies Kirsten Renner | Director, Talent Acquisition | Novetta We will review 10+ years of recruiter pitches (e-mails, job board responses, and social media correspondence) and discuss the key takeaways from what worked and what didn't. Why won't they respond? What makes an active candidate bite? A passive one? Does persistence pay off? What does "coming on too strong" look like? How can you establish deep long-term lasting relationships?Track: Advanced Recruiting Track: Advanced Recruiting The “What” of Pipeline Building: Relevant Engagement Mediums Aaron McElroy | Consultant | Avature Federal By now, most recruiters understand the importance of proactively engaging talent pools, but what do we do to actually engage them?  Send newsletters?  Open job lists?  Funny jokes?  Our goal is to engage them, but we may just be another annoying source of SPAM.          This session will discuss content and interaction strategies designed to create active two-way engagement between the company and the candidate, and apply those strategies within a methodology that ultimately results in conversion of qualified candidates, increased referral generation, and thoughtful redirection of non-qualified candidates.  We will stress authenticity over gimmickry, as well as the difference between social and anti-social networking as a means of engagement.  We will share real examples from well-known companies like Pepsi and Accenture, to lesser known companies, such as small government contractors from the Intel Community.  Track: Management & Strategy How to Build an Effective Recruitment Function from Scratch Tiffany Ballve | Sr. Director, Talent Acquisition | Phase One In this session, Tiffany will talk about how she has built and optimized recruiting functions not once, not twice, but three times in the Washington DC tech consulting space. We'll cover everything from laying the groundwork to recruiting/training up your team to building a brand and establishing metrics. We'll leave you with ways to make an immediate impact and how you can communicate that impact up to the executive level to drive business decisions for the following years. If you're interested in growing out a recruiting function or optimizing the one you have then you won't want to miss this! 12:00– 1:15 Lunch 1:15 – 2:15 Breakout Sessions Track: Back to Basics  Market Yourself!

From NGOs to Fortune 500 companies to Mom and Pop shops, we will look across markets, industries and specialties to identify what talent leaders can do today to compete - and win - the top talent of tomorrow. The goal of this presentation is to talk about real issues that really matter to real recruiters, and focus on identifying what's really new and what's really next. For real. Ditch the buzzwords and BS for a data driven look into the changing world of work - and what that means for the work of HR and recruiting.  Attendees will learn: How to follow the trail of venture capital and influx of cash to determine which startups are being built to last, which categories of technology and tools are the hottest segments of the talent business, and how recruiters can stay ahead by staying on top of the bigger business picture without a whole lot of work (or any special knowledge). What the future of work looks like after on boarding, and how the blended workforce and gig economy models, coupled with a rise in knowledge work, globalization and remote workers, are already shaping the way companies hire, and what the upending of the traditional social contract means for traditional recruiting and Human Relations.  How to build a business case for talent acquisition to get the resources required to recruit the talent you need, and how to work with internal stakeholders and employees to tie talent acquisition efforts directly to bottom line results. We'll talk about how to make friends, influence hiring managers and finally make your people the greatest asset in the business - only with the P/L to prove it. 3:45 – 4:00 Closing Remarks
