    NYSA's Lobby Day in Albany is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14th.  Last year, NYSA members met with over a dozen legislators.  Through this effort, we were able to tell them our story and avoid costly and burdensome legislation passing. 

    Attendees are encouraged to arrive in Albany the night before to have dinner with NYSA's New York State Lobbyist, Peter Crouse, to gain a better understanding of what is happening at the state level.  

    The hotel is within walking distance of the Capital and gets booked very quickly.  If you are not able to come up the night before, please plan on arriving prior to 9:00 a.m. on May 14th as the first appointment is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. The meetings wrap up for the day around 3:00 p.m.

    All NYSA members are strongly encouraged to participate in this powerful event.  Attendees will receive an education you won't soon forget!  You owe it to your business, the industry and yourself to attend!

    We all understand the volatility of the staffing firm industry and how uncertainty is part of the challenge business owners face every day in running their business. But we want to help you be certain (and prepared!) during uncertain times. Because sometimes being prepared can make the uncertainty less painful to the success of your business. 2019 has a lot of unknowns including rising interest rates, lower unemployment than we’ve ever seen before, a predicted slow down in GDP, possible trade conflicts, increased labor wages and increased consumer spending. All in all, there are a lot of factors at play and knowing what next steps to take can make or break your future.

    By listening to this webinar you’ll be able to:

    • Prepare for a difficult economic situation and have the tools to ride out the storm
    • Reduce unnecessary expenses
    • Pay off expensive debt
    • Know your debt structure
    • Align with strategic partners to find the right one to help your business grow during down times
    • Refinance costly debtors
    • How to work your A/R so you reduce the days until you get paid

    Speaker: Craig Cohen, Senior Manager of Credit, Advance Partners

    You wouldn’t attempt to drive your car with blinders on so it is reasonable that you want to take the same approach with your business. If you are trapped in a technology time warp, you won’t be able to set strategic goals or keep on top of analytics.

    Information drives good business decisions. Accurate data and analytics allow companies to make educated and informed conclusions. Setting strategic goals that are relevant and successful are always based upon a strong data initiative.

    Everything should have a measure associated with it.

    This webinar will cover:

    • How can data be prepared for accuracy and integrity? Where does it start?
    • What is a “big data” platform and why is it necessary for today’s businesses?
    • How can data visualizations be used for business planning?
    • What are some examples of how businesses are using data for a forecasting strategy?
    • What is an analytics dashboard? How is it used?
    • Can analytics help measure daily performance?
    • What makes analytics superior to traditional reporting methods?

    Learn about this and more! Become a “big data” expert and launch your organization into a data centric platform for profitability and success!

    With unemployment at its lowest in decades, it is an employee's job market. Job seekers have the luxury to be more selective, and skilled employees are less faithful and exploring their options. With more jobs than people to fill them, attracting and retaining workers is one of the most challenging issues facing staffing agencies today. In this webinar, CTI Director of Credits & Incentives, Stephanie Banuelos will share insights on how employment tax incentives like the WOTC can increase your cash flow to fund recruitment efforts and differentiate your staffing firm. Learn strategies to offset the costs of staffing initiatives, while making your staffing firm more attractive as well as recruiting and retaining workers.

    As an entrepreneur in the staffing industry, you naturally want the lowest cost financing and the maximum borrowing flexibility. However many entrepreneurs fail to plan ahead so that they can reap the benefits of lower rates or higher borrowing flexibility.

    A growing staffing firm has options to finance the working capital needs that arise from growth. Each method of financing growth carries a cost. In addition to cost, different methods of financing might not be flexible enough to allow you to meet your goals. In other instances you might not be “eligible” for certain type of financing. This webinar seeks to help you understand different lending products by breaking them down by financing cost, ability to access, and flexibility.

    Data breaches occur every day. Hacking incidents are the most recognizable and expensive cause of data loss.

    The cost of a data breach and the reputation damage to your business after a breach occurs can be devastating. A well-designed insurance policy will provide the protection you need, and breach management expertise to ensure the breach is managed properly and in accordance with regulatory requirements. Federal and State laws require forensic, legal and credit monitoring services are in place after a breach to protect customers from the misuse of their personal information.

    The operations of staffing firms are generally not fully understood by brokers, agents and insurance companies who do not specialize in this industry. Their unfamiliarity with the unique business models leads to carriers declining or only approximating the exact coverages needed for optimum protection, ultimately increasing the cost of risk. Loveman, Kornreich & Steers, Inc. (LKS) has been a specialist in the Staffing Industry for over 25 years and was appointed the first “Industry Partner” of New York Staffing Association (NYSA) in 1992.
