2016 Convention Testimonials

It was a great conference and event, I would strongly recommend for anyone involved in physician recruiting to attend. It was great seeing everyone and we look forward to exhibiting next year! For us, as a newer solution in the space, it was very humbling to hear the positive feedback we received, but the best thing for me was hearing the recent changes and challenges recruiters are dealing with on a day to day basis, and their ideas and recommendations to us to better help physician recruiters as we continue to grow and evolve! Thank you Nahry, Craig, Jim, Neal, and everyone else for putting on a great conference, every year it continues to grow and get better and better – Jim Murray

"I thought it was one of the best conferences I have ever attended for NAPR.  The committee outdid themselves in that program and all of the arrangements and the service at this hotel was impeccable."  Brenda Lewis, President, B.E.L. & Associates, Inc.

The convention committee had one of the best slate of speakers that I have seen in years.  Excellent program.  Those who did not attend missed out on a great venue.  The digital age with the program, etc. on the app I was a little unsure of at the beginning of the conference but by the second day, up and running and this old gal really enjoyed that connection.  I know that you all work hard to prepare for the convention and wanted you to know what a great job! If your program is as good next February as this one was I will have to fly to California for the convention.  -Brenda Lewis

This meeting was probably the best NAPR/NALTO meeting we have attended.  We were honored to receive the 2015-2016 NAPR Outstanding Vendor Award and we hope that we can continue to support you all to be successful in your roles in recruitment this coming year! -Tammy Hagar

Thank y'all so much for having me speak at your conference Thursday. I had an absolute blast and really enjoyed meeting you all. If you ever need anything from LinkedIn you know who to call, and please let me know if there are any other future opportunities for me to speak at any of your events. - Kevin Ramirez, LinkedIn
