SMA: About
Share |

The Cleveland SHRM Staffing Management Association (SMA) committee is committed to providing national conference quality, practitioner focused programs and networking opportunities to give Talent Acquisition and HR professionals best practice benchmarking information, tools, and strategies to help their company recruit better and faster than before.  

By partnering with one of Northeast Ohio’s top high-tech companies (Hyland Software), we have attracted an array of HR and Recruiting professionals to our annual conference. Continuing to identify and reach a distinguished group of talent acquisition leaders in our community, SMA continues to influence leaders who will ultimately authorize expansions to a broader group of potential attendees.

About SMA's Program Year:

This year, SMA is excited to announce their theme of “The Art of the Interview.” Join SMA as they take a step back from the day-in-day-out interview process and explore other professions that take a different approach to interviewing [think: journalism], learn about the newest staffing management technologies and interviewing platforms, and dive into interviewing best practices within other companies. Stay tuned for more details on our programs throughout the year.

Our program year kicks off in the fall and concludes in spring 2017 at our annual conference. Tentative dates for SMA’s program year are as followed:

·  Event 1: November 4, 2016

·  Event 2: December 2, 2016

·  Event 3: March 24, 2017

·  Annual Conference: April 28, 2017


SMA events are typically held on Friday mornings and includes the opportunity to network with other HR and recruiting professionals over breakfast before the program begins. Our programs will be held at Advance Ohio, 1801 Superior Avenue, Downtown Cleveland (Former Plain Dealer Building). The 2017 Conference location is Hyland Software Campus in Westlake.
