Welcome to BATSA, the Boston Area Talent Sourcing Association! Everything we offer in terms of sourcing education is free with the generous support of our sponsors -- but they do not influence mission or content direction.

Hope you enjoyed our quarterly activities from 2014 through 2019. We went on hiatus starting in early 2020 due to COVID but hope to return sometime in 2024 with many more great programs we've been planning! In the meantime, make sure to get on our notifications list with your preferred email address if you aren't already (and tell your sourcing/recruiting colleagues to do likewise!) and view past events or learn from past presentations by our invited subject matter experts.

Keeping everything free also means we depend on the time/effort of volunteers. Regardless of what level of industry expertise you have, please learn about the various ways you can help us take sourcing to the next level with our dynamic community of hundreds (so far!) of forward-thinking, aspiring industry professionals.

What people are saying about BATSA:

"What a great night it was! Thank you again Ed are a super star! YES...I'm a believer! (XO to The Monkees!) and I want to learn more!

Thank you also to Glenn G., Randy B., Marie B. and anyone else involved in putting the night together, plus must include Monster and Avature for another night of learning, networking and some yummy food too!

Icing on the cake was the opportunity to hear more about and see the famous Frank McCarthy, truly a living legend around around the topic of Diversity [talent sourcing]. I have heard about him for many years and was overwhelmed at the warm and wonderful introductory remarks by so many who have known him personally and professionally over the years! Really a spectacular individual! He was honored with a lifetime achievement award.

Anyway...just had to say thanks again here and suggest to those who wonder whether these BATSA gatherings are worth it. YES...OMGoodness...YES!!!!"
