Many Midwest ACE members and non-members alike say that the Trends in Recruiting Conference is one of the most relevant events they attend each year.

Trends provides a glimpse into the future of recruiting by presenting valuable data and research results from Dr. Phil Gardner’s Collegiate Employment Research Institute. The conference is also a great opportunity to network with colleges and employers throughout the Midwest region.

Internet is complimentary in the guest sleeping rooms for MWACE conference attendees. The front desk will provide you with a code on your key packets to use when you sign in. Guests should not be accepting charges. In the case that you log in and lose your code, please contact the front desk to get the charges adjusted. Internet in the meeting space has been set up only for presenters, the board meeting, and the leadership meeting.


The Trends in Recruiting Conference will be offering an Employer Colloquium this year which will feature a student panel and a chance to discuss recruiting with Phil Gardner. Discussion topics will be based on the feedback that was provided by attendees during registration. Topics may include transition from college to work, career progression in the workplace, and workforce readiness, the areas of focus in Phil Gardner’s research. Attendees should come prepared to speak directly with Phil Gardner regarding hot topics in recruiting. This will also be an opportunity to not only listen to the student panelists but to ask questions directly regarding recruitment and what these students expect from their employers. There is no additional charge for this event if you are a member of Midwest ACE.

The conference will be hosting the following employer Professional Exchange site visits for college professionals:
Accretive Health
Coyote Logistics
