New Staffing World Attendee Experience Announced: ASA Cares LIVE


Hands-on Attendee Event Will Integrate Social Responsibility Into Largest Staffing and Recruiting Convention and Expo in the World

ASA Cares LiveThe American Staffing Association announces the launch of ASA Cares LIVE—an event to incorporate good corporate citizenship into the Staffing World 2018 experience. Attendees will be able to participate in hands-on activities in support of two organizations based in the convention’s host metro area of Washington, DC.

Event: ASA Cares LIVE
Date: Tuesday, Oct. 16
Time: 2‒4 p.m. Eastern time
Location: Prince George’s Expo Hall, Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, 201 Waterfront St., National Harbor, MD 20745

    During ASA Cares LIVE, Staffing World attendees will be able to participate in two charitable activities:

  • Assembling hygiene kits for homeless individuals through the charity So Others Might Eat, which helps the poor and homeless in Washington, DC, by meeting their immediate daily needs with food, clothing, and health care, and providing other services to break the cycle of homelessness
  • Creating get-well cards with messages of gratitude and healing for service members recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center— the nation’s largest joint military medical center—in Bethesda, MD

ASA also is collecting monetary donations for SOME now and throughout the convention. To contribute, visit and enter “ASA Cares” in the “Additional Information” box on the online form.

“ASA Cares LIVE is a new Staffing World tradition designed to give back to the convention’s host cities each year in a meaningful manner,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “By participating in ASA Cares LIVE, convention attendees also will be able to experience firsthand how easy it is to make a difference in their communities and, hopefully, will go home with some new ideas about developing or adding to their companies’ social responsibility initiatives.”

ASA Cares LIVE is supported by Assurance, a six-time ASA Care Award winner for outstanding social responsibility programs in the staffing and recruiting industry.
