Key Membership Feature


  • ISPR members benefit from being included in an email network both in Illinois and Nationally. Both networks provide an invaluable tool for recruiters to bounce ideas off of peers and to ask about experience with various topics. Members are free to respond to topics that interest them or that they have experience with.
  • The ISPR network is only open to ISPR members and provides the opportunity gather information that may be exclusive or pertinent to Illinois recruiters, providers and health systems. ISPR Members are automatically signed up for the ISPR E-mail Network upon application and receipt of dues. Instructions will be provided at sign up.
  • The National Network is managed by Cass Greene. She can be reached at, or at (828) 268-0047. Cass keeps a backlog of specific topics from the network, which is an invaluable tool to a recruiter needing information. She also manages the network by sending the emails and responses. Currently, this network represents over 14,000 hospitals, practices and clinics!
  • AAPPR (Association for Advancing Physician and Provider Recruitment) is a national association provided for inhouse recruiter’s as well. They also offer an email network on various topics of interest on a daily basis, as well as their annual conference and various other benefits. Contact AAPPR at to learn more about their membership requirements and benefits.

Kip Aitken

Kip Aitken, MBA CGH Medical Center

When I was first hired to be CGH’s Director of Physician Recruitment, my boss told me to do 2 things immediately – join ASPR (now AAPPR) and join ISPR. I didn’t really know what to expect at my first couple of ISPR meetings. Everyone was so experienced and knowledgeable, and I was as green as could be. I was impressed with how warm and welcoming everyone was, and they all openly shared ideas to help me be successful. It didn’t take long for me to become comfortable, then I volunteered to be on the Conference Committee and the Membership Chair. I’ve held a number of leadership positions in the group, and I will be forever grateful for the relationships forged during my time at ISPR. It’s been tremendous to be surrounded by so many talented, intelligent, generous individuals. The people I’ve met during my time as a member of ISPR are extraordinary, and my life is richer as a result. It’s a great professional group to join.
