Lifetime Achievement Award
At the 2012 ASPR Annual Conference, President Scott Manning presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to one of our founding members, Tim Skinner, DASPR. Tim recently retired as the Executive Director at 3RNet.
The purpose of the Lifetime Achievement Award is to recognize and honor an ASPR member for a distinguished career and for significant contributions made to the field of in-house physician recruitment. Tim has made significant contributions to ASPR over many years and is both a role model and an inspiration for others. He has demonstrated a lifetime commitment to advancing the field of in-house physician recruitment.
For members who have been part of ASPR for many years, it’s difficult to think back on its beginnings and past annual meetings and not think of Tim Skinner. Tim has held several leadership roles including founding member, president and board member, and JASPR editor. As Tim heads into retirement, it’s fitting to pay tribute to him for all he’s done both for ASPR and the physician recruitment community.
You can read more about Tim in an article in the Summer issue of JASPR and view his acceptance speech that was played at the Annual Conference (Tim was unable to attend).
Congratulations and best wishes in your retirement, Tim!
Volunteer of the Year Award
Also at the 2012 ASPR Annual Conference, President Scott Manning presented the Volunteer of the Year Award to Marci Jackson, FASPR, Marshfield Clinic, Marshfield, WI.
The purpose of the Volunteer of the Year Award is to recognize and honor an ASPR member for significant contributions made as a volunteer over the past year. Marci has made significant contributions to ASPR over many years and is both a role model and an inspiration for others.
Marci is a long time member and leader of ASPR. She has served on the board of directors as both the president and treasurer.

JASPR Feature Article: Everything I Needed to Know About Onboarding I Learned as a Waitress
By Gina Truhe, AASPR, Onboarding Specialist, Health Quest, LaGrangeville, NY
For many of us, going out to dinner at a restaurant is a treat, a reward on Saturday night for a hard week of work, or a time to celebrate our milestones. When the service is good, we feel like royalty. When the service is poor, it can ruin the whole night regardless of how great the food is. Restaurant professionals who are well-trained in customer service know what to say to make us feel comfortable and can deftly handle problems that may arise.
Like many of us, I spent my early 20s earning extra cash by working in restaurants. The skills I learned from that experience have proven to be invaluable in my current role of onboarding new providers into our medical practice. Similar to working in the restaurant industry, the root of what we do in recruiting and onboarding is unequivocally customer service-based. We are here to provide our customers (newly hired providers, senior management, the medical staff, physician’s families, etc.) with high quality, friendly and courteous service.
