2013 Labor and Employment Regional Meetings

February 4 - 7, 2013

OSBA's Labor & Employment Conference comes to you—mark your calendar for February 2013 and register now!

Do you have questions about recent court decisions impacting your workforce or legislation that affects labor and employment issues in your district? Need help understanding health care reform? Are you losing sleep over collective bargaining? Have a question you want to ask an attorney?

Help is on the way! During the first week of February, the Oregon School Boards Association will send its negotiators and attorneys to a location near you. These regional meetings will feature informal roundtable discussions in which you can raise issues and ask questions on labor and employment issues.

You’ll hear the latest on collective bargaining, case law and legislation—information that you’ll use to handle the specific problems your district faces. During the “Ask the Attorney” session, you’ll get expert guidance and advice on pressing labor and employment matters.

Who

Meetings are targeted for board members, district superintendents, community college presidents, human resource directors and business managers. Whether you are an experienced veteran at the bargaining table or a first-year board member, we will have answers to your questions.

What

We created a full agenda to update you on labor and employment data, trends, best practices and sound advice. We also will have plenty of time for you to ask questions and raise concerns of particular significance to you. Dinner is scheduled from 4 to 5 p.m. and is included in the registration fee. All attendees are welcome to attend all or any portion of the meeting.
