Seasonal staffing struggles have turned into a year-round nightmare. We at the New England Chapter of the Club Management Association of America hear about this massive issue daily. We are so excited to share a potential solution with our membership. Introducing Seasonal Connect!

This presentation will dive into club's staffing struggles and issues, a discussion of novel ideas and solutions, and then provide an update on the world of international staffing. We will then highlight a new and real solution to New England's clubs' staffing struggles – Seasonal Connect.

Seasonal Connect is a software platform that is revolutionizing the staffing and operational struggles of seasonal organizations. Seasonal Connect features a robust opposite-season and same-season employer search, an opportunity for seasonal workers (American and international) to apply for jobs, housing and daily transportation assistance, and inclusion into a community of seasonal organizations for help, support, networking, recruiting, and assistance for one another.

Join Keith Pabian and Carly Eglin of Seasonal Connect and Pabian Law for an overview of Seasonal Connect and a discussion of how it can be helpful to all of New England's clubs. This meeting is not to be missed if your club employs seasonal workers - including Americans and foreign nationals - or is generally struggling with staffing.
