To all current NNEAPS members,

I want to take this time to thank you all for being such an important part of our association. Your membership shows clients and candidates that you are supportive of the ethics of the industry.

This year the NNEAPS Board was proud to offer the largest training program series in NNEAPS history.  This “added value” was very important to the membership.  Based on the strong attendance and great reviews, we are very excited, that you were pleased with the results.

As an added bonus this year, we were proud to have partnered with the National Association of Personnel Services, (NAPS),   for their annual conference in Boston. It was a great success with over 400 attendees.

Aside from our educational offerings, we were vigilant in alerting membership on upcoming legislative bills presented to the various state legislators that may have a negative impact on how we do business. NNEAPS also continued our great collaboration with Attorney Jim Reidy, Labor Law Expert, of Sheehan, Phinney Bass and Green and gained knowledge from his counsel in support of our members.   Watch for upcoming email alerts on changes of importance to our industry.

In October our Board of Directors met at their annual retreat to determine which educational offerings we will offer in the coming year.     Legislative matters were also reviewed and will be closely watched for any pending impact.   Remember, NNEAPS offers a split network through the website to give members a greater ability to satisfy their client’s demands in this tough labor market.  Google Alert the website www.nneaps.com, to be sure to get all your membership has to offer right as it’s posted.

Mark your calendars, we are excited that our association will to be hosting the 2016 Regional New England Conference (NEAPS). This conference bears national recognition year after year and is attended by recruiters, owner/managers staffing professionals, affiliated vendors and operations specialists from all over the US and Canada.  The planning of a rich agenda of speakers and a wealth of vendor introduction opportunities is currently underway.      This amazing networking, educational and social forum is not to be missed.  In 2016, it will be held May 5,6 at the Sheraton Harborside in Portsmouth, NH.   May is a beautiful time to visit the New Hampshire Seacoast.

From the split networking, affiliated vendor member discounts to educational offerings to the legislative watch, a legal overview and social options, your dues are an investment you can’t afford to ignore. Our request is simple, please renew your membership! We appreciate your support and are always open to listening to how we can serve you better. As Steven Davis, NNEAPS President said last year, “We all need to work together to maintain the integrity and knowledge that our clients and candidates depend on.”

Thank you,

David R. Ciullo, Board Member and Membership Chair
