Key Membership Feature


  • Members of the Illinois SIG enjoy the advantage of participating in an email network that connects them not only within Illinois but also across the nation. These networks offer recruiters a priceless resource for sharing ideas and seeking advice on various subjects.

  • The Illinois SIG is exclusively available to AAPPR (Association for Advancing Physician and Provider Recruitment) members, offering a unique platform to access information specifically tailored to Illinois recruiters, providers, and health systems. Upon application and payment of dues, members are automatically enrolled in our AAPPR chat community, and login instructions will be furnished upon registration.

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.
