Greetings LWHRA members!Brent Schlosstein


It is my privilege as your president to invite you to join us next Thursday, October 10, for our monthly meeting.  


Our luncheon at the Bellevue Club will feature two items you don't want to miss: an amazing presentation by our own Jodi Slavik entitled "From Meals to Marriage: Legal Stuff You Need to Know to End 2013" AND - wait for it - the LWHRA annual meeting.


As you know, Jodi is our energetic and knowledgeable Legislative Committee chair. She will present a comprehensive review of employment law changes that occurred in 2013 and changes expected in 2014, including Supreme Court rulings (and those accepted for review), state and federal legislation, and agency rulemaking. This session promises a wealth of information for every one of our members, and you certainly won't want to miss it. Today is the deadline for registration so click here to register today.


In addition, we will have the pleasure of looking at the work of the past year and celebrating our accomplishments. Our annual meeting, kicking off right at 11:30 am, will be a chance for you to hear from chapter officers, review the excellent state of our finances, and cheer on the prospective members of the 2014 board. (If you haven't already voted, be sure to respond to the reminder email coming your way and mark your ballot for the energetic and dedicated candidates you prefer.)


As a membership organization, we are required to come together once a year to be informed, to present our views, and to keep up the connections that make our chapter a vital and thriving organization. Come join us. I look forward to celebrating with you.



Brent Schlosstein, President
