Laws and Legislation

Tomorrow morning at this time, I should halfway to the Orlamdo airport where I will be catching to a plane to Washington D.C. so that I can attend the SHRM 2010 Employment Law & Legislative Conference.   I was lucky enough to be granted press access to the event by SHRM, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone from SHRM very soon.

I’ll be writing  about the potentially enormous amount of activity on workplace legislative issues that we may see from Congress and the White House this year.  I’ll be tweeting  from the conference as well, along with some other HR bloggers, including Joan Ginsberg, Paul Smith, and folks from the SHRM Public Affairs office.  You can follow our tweets on the #shrmleg10 twub here.

I’ll also be having lunch with Mary Ellen Slayter of Smartbrief to discuss some upcoming projects.

I am also looking forward to a truly  unique event – a SHRM tweetup at the Library of Congress!

VIP Washington Reception at the Library of Congress

On Thursday, March 18, SHRM will host an invitation-only reception in the Library of Congress for everyone attending the 2010 Employment Law & Legislative Conference.  SHRM was granted special permission from the Librarian of the Congress to host this event for its members – an uncommon occurrence for any association.

The Library of Congress is the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution and serves as the research arm of Congress.  It also is the largest library in the world, with nearly 142 million items including more than 32 million books and other print materials in 470 languages; and the world’s largest collection of legal materials, films, maps, sheet music and sound recordings.

During this VIP Washington Reception, HR tweeters will unite for the first-ever SHRM Legislative Conference Tweetup. SHRM Public Affairs (@SHRMPA) will be posting tweets and photos throughout the evening on March 18.  To follow the Legislative Conference and VIP Reception on Twitter that night, please go to and enter the hashtag #SHRMLEG10 into the search box.

If you are at the conference, or in Washington DC and would like to get together, let me know.   I’d love to connect!
