April 24 - April 26, 2013 - Houston, Texas
National Employment Law Council will hold its annual
conference April 24 through April 26, 2013 at the Four Seasons in Houston, Texas.
The NELC is an organization primarily composed of minority outside and in-house attorneys throughout the United States and abroad who represent private and public sector employers in all aspects of labor and employment matters. The conference is directed to attorneys and senior level human resources professionals representing management in labor and employment law. This is an advanced program for practitioners with significant experience representing exclusively management in labor and employment law.
Our annual conference focuses on topics of interest
to such attorneys, as well as those of minority senior
human resource professionals. With respect to attorneys,
attendance at the conference is limited strictly to
outside counsel who regularly spend at least 75 percent
of their time representing management clients in labor
and employment law matters, and to in-house counsel
who devote a minimum of 25 percent of their time to
labor and employment matters.
Conference registrations cannot be accepted from individuals
who do not exclusively represent management and meet
the percentage criteria described above. This is an
advanced program for practitioners with significant
experience representing exclusively management in labor
and employment law.
Conference registrations are subject to approval by
the council based on criteria relative to the applicant's
practice. We are continually updating our invitation
list; accordingly, we encourage you to send us the names
and mailing addresses of colleagues whom you believe
meet the requisite criteria and would benefit from this
conference. They will be considered for invitation to
this or future conferences.
