Currently, the National Employment Law Council, comprised of over 600 members nationwide, manages and presents one annual national conference. This Annual Conference is held during the spring of each year, usually at the end of April or the beginning of May. The first conference was held in Chicago in 1995, and since has been held in Nashville, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Charlotte, and Denver. Of the attendees, each conference has usually represented a breakdown of approximately 25 percent in-house and 75 percent outside counsel. In addition to in-house and outside counsel, NELC's Annual Conferences are regularly attended by federal judges, members of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
