2019 Labor Relations Conference Announced

Nov 06, 2018

Mark Your Calendars - April 15-17, 2019

Details are firming up for the 2019 Labor Relations Conference. It will be held April 15-17, 2019 at the JW Marriott in New Orleans.

We will kick things off with a General Session on Monday afternoon, followed by a reception: A better way to spend April 15th than filing taxes.  

A full day of programs will follow on Tuesday, followed by our “traditional” reception at K-Pauls, a landmark in the French Quarter and a favorite of attendees at past conferences.

Speaking of the French Quarter, the JW Marriott is close to the Quarter, but not within it.  Located at 614 Canal Street, it is promoted as both “Romantic and Family Friendly.” Just the place to visit a host of downtown New Orleans attractions, restaurants, etc.

The Conference will end by noon on Wednesday. Special room rates are being confirmed and will run before and after the conference for those interested in spending a little more time in the Crescent City.

So save the dates. We will be sending out registration and hotel information soon but wanted to make sure you had the date information early enough to include in your planning for next year.
