Last week we hosted the 24th Annual HR Law & Solutions seminar. THANK YOU to the 340 attendees (record attendance!) who helped us make it such a great success! As usual, our Henderson Franklin crew had a blast getting to catch up with so many familiar faces, and we were excited to welcome many new faces in the crowd as well.
In addition to a full morning of education on various employment law topics, we featured two fantastic guest speakers, Jennifer Shirkani and Ethan Wall. We also inducted Laura Boyette, Marty Bryson, Marianne Davis, Carol Docker (pictured above) and Tracey DiBiase (pictured below) into the HR Law & Solutions Hall of Fame. Additional photos from the day can be found on Henderson Franklin’s Facebook page.
Special thanks goes to our amazing major sponsors, Lykes Insurance and Gravity Benefits. Our seminar would not be the same without our long-standing partnership with lunch sponsor Lykes, and Gravity was a fantastic addition as this year’s breakfast sponsor. We look forward to partnering with both groups for years to come.
Speaking of years to come, next year is huge – it is our 25th Anniversary! Planning is already underway for what we hope proves to be our biggest and best seminar yet! This is where you come in – we would like your feedback on how we can achieve this goal. First up? Choosing the date. Historically, we’ve done the seminar on Tuesdays. This year, it was Monday. In the seminar evaluations, a few people suggested that Friday would be the best day (we really do read every single evaluation!). What say you, readers?
Once we have shored up a date and location, we will be asking for your feedback on topics you would like to hear, and what format(s) you prefer. What better way for us to ensure the 25th Annual HR Law & Solutions is the best ever, but to give you, our faithful attendees (and future attendees!) what you want?
Thank you all in advance for your feedback. If you have additional thoughts, please know we are always interested in hearing them!
On behalf of the entire employment law team at Henderson Franklin, I want to send a final heartfelt thanks to our attendees and sponsors for making last week’s seminar so amazing. It really is like a reunion to us, and although there is an incredible amount of work that goes into it (especially from Gail Lamarche!), it is absolute one of the highlights of each year for us.
See you in 2017!
