Employment Correspondent

       The Houston Area Association of Personnel Consultants recently honored outstanding members for professional achievement and contributions to the community and the personnel industry at the organization's recent annual banquet.
       Earning this year's honors were Charlotte Kern Stowe,   CPC, vice president of Ken Kern Search Consultants, for outstanding contribution to the private placement industry and Jill Silman, CPC, CTS, president of Add-a-Temp Executive Employment, for community service.
        Gladney Darroh, senior partner at Piper-Morgan Associates and AEI, was named top producer for the professional-technical division fo the third consecutive year by HAAPC and by the Texas Association of Personal Consultants at their recent annual convention in Austin.

   Darroh, who also has earned Million Dollar Club honors in two of the last three years, attributes his success to a focus on building relationships based on honesty and integrity with the proven belief that the business will follow.
          "In the recruiting business, where strong relationships with our clients and candidates are a priority, the first question I ask when working with others is , 'Is this in the best interest of the relationship?' " Darroh said.
          Stowe served as HAAPC president and co-chaired this year's TAPC annual convention.  Under her leadership, HAAPC's monthly meetings continued to educate and inform members on the local and state levels regarding issues affecting their industry.

"In Houston, HAAPC represents more than 100 firms and hundreds of consultants involved in the business of personnel recruiting and searching," she said.  "Much of our membership has earned certification as Certified Personnel Consultants of Certified Temporary Staffing Specialists through the state.
         "HAAPC is very involved in training members to perform their duties in an effective and ethical manner. That's the basis for the organization itself."
          Susan Matthiessen, CPC, executive director of the TAPC and HAAPC, said there are nine chapters throughout the state.
