Happy New Year OCEMA!
It is the year 2012…can you believe it? It sounds so futuristic but it is for real and will bring new opportunities, new challenges, and I am confident a few surprises.
Please note that we have made some changes such as using Event Brite which allows members to prepay for events via Credit Card. And we have implemented a new referral program for our members. If you bring a guest with you that is not already a member, you will be eligible to win a $50 gift card which will be raffled off at the end of each meeting.
With the new year comes new employment laws and regulations and keeping with tradition we will dedicate our first meeting of the year to learn about key legal changes for 2012.
I am pleased to announce that John Polson from Fisher & Phillips LLP will return to enlighten and humor us with insights and information about new or amended Federal or State employment laws.
