Party/award site and date!



This event has now passed.

This event was to celebrate YOUR successes as a PEO Broker!  Brokers had the opportunity to network and hear from some top-notch PEOs:   John Mackle from Worksite Employee Leasing, Phil Martina from Kymberly Group and Scott Hanson from Key HR.

This event was FREE to attend due to the generosity of our sponsor PEOs, Kymberly Group, Worksite and Key HR.  SS&L derived NO financial incentive from this event and was only providing the venue so we could come together to improve our industry.  All "profit" from the event was donated to our sponsor charity, RCS Pinellas.

This was a chance to be promoted on a competitor PEO Broker's website!  We looked forward to putting your name in lights!!!
