    Opening Party “Bowling Bash!”

    Bowling, libations, fiesta and fun!

    300 Anaheim, a five-minute jaunt from the Orange County Hyatt Regency, will host CSA’s “Bowling Bash” at their beautiful facility  in Anaheim. Translated, Fiesta means party and will serve as the opening social event of this year’s conclave. Attendees will enjoy open bowling in the 300 Anaheim’s secluded  nine-lane bowling alley, as well as fantastic victuals from south of the border, not to mention beverages from our own bar. In previous years, the opening bowling party has been hugely popular with everyone who attended. We suspect this year’s Fiesta will be even bigger and more fun!

    Note:  CSA will provide transportation between Hyatt Regency and Bowlmor Lanes

    New Tools and Resources to Find and Keep Good People

    It’s time to discover brand new, little known facts and methods that can improve your hiring results by as much as 50%, and your retention of staff by as much as 80%! With the Millennial population on the rise, and the need for qualified staff that stays, it is imperative to use today’s newest resources before and after bringing on new employees. This eye-opening, caffeinated workshop will shed light on social media, workplace training and culture, and education factors that can drastically reduce staff turnover, and consequently, improve your bottom line. It’s time to Hack the Hiring Process and Empower the Team!

    Teresa M. Young, President of Sign Biz, Inc., kicks off this big keynote with a look at new research that explains how social media prowess, ongoing education, and Millennials can build a better business and a stronger hiring process. What is the fastest growing new tool employers are using to add a new team member? The facts may surprise you, and the resources will empower you!

    Lori Anderson, President of the International Sign Association will then reveal new credentialing tests that can have a profound impact on staff quality and retention.

    If you are familiar with “Endorsements” on LinkedIn, then you are ready for the next level of credentials – the true litmus test of skills – Digital Badges. By clicking on an applicant’s digital badge, which has encoded metadata in the icon, a potential employer can get more information about it.

    The future of employment and retention offers modern, high-tech and high-touch opportunities for verification. Young and Anderson are ready to share some high-impact, fresh new perspectives to empower your human resources!
