Roundtable Discussions and                     Anniversary Celebration                              

Thursday, September 15, 2016
3:30 am - 6:30 pm
Prairie Fire Museum, 5801 W. 135th Street
Overland Park, KS 66223

Sign up for one of KCCBA's most popular meetings of the year - Roundtable Discussions. You'll have the opportunity to discuss your burning HR problems, learn from your colleagues, and contribute your knowledge to the topic. 

A Networking Reception to celebrate our 25th anniversary will follow from 5:00 - 6:30 pm.  All this for the low registration fee of $15 for members and nonmembers!

How it works: 
Table size will be limited to 8-10 people. Facilitators will introduce the topic and steer the discussion. Participants are asked to contribute their topical issues and share their ideas about other issues. Come prepared to learn something new about your hot topics AND to share your ideas/best practices.

When you register, you will indicate your top three table choices on the registration form. We will make every effort to place you at the table of your top choice.

Topic Choices are:

  1. Mental Health in the Workplace - Nancy Spangler (facilitator)
  2. Labor Relations - Anita Bosch (facilitator)
  3. DOL Fiduciary Rule Regulations and the Best Interest Prohibited Transaction Exemption - Tom Graves (facilitator)
  4. ACA and Lessons Learned - Jeanne Krug, Marian Govreau (facilitator)
  5. Final FLSA Rulings - Cindy Upshaw, Brett Carey (facilitators)
  6. HR Technolology - Ann Blalock (facilitators)
As part of our Anniversary Celebration we will have trivia questions from 1991 (our start up year 25 years ago) along with FABULOUS prizes for the winner answers (no cell phone or iPads allowed for to look up answers). Be sure to join us for the food, fun and networking!
