The American Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Law Section kicks off its annual conference tomorrow in Chicago and, by all accounts, it appears its going to be bigger and better than ever.
Over 1300 people have registered for the conference, and the programming looks first-rate, with NLRB Chair Wilma Liebman, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, and various USDOL officials among the presenters. The ABA’s press release sums up the highlights.
But just because you can’t make it, doesn’t mean you can’t advantage of the conference or follow what’s going on. Indeed, there are a variety of different ways you can do so:
- Be sure follow @abalel on Twitter and also do a search for the hashtag (or keyword) #lel2010. Conference participants will be using the hashtag throughout the conference to post what is going on.
- You can also use other social networking tools like Facebook to see additional updates.
- If you’re going to the conference, the ABA has also set up a mobile conference page too called "Tripbuilder". So all the conference information is easily seen on your iPhone, Android or Blackberry device. If you have trouble with the link, the actual address is: http://abalaw.tripbuilder.mobi/home/abalaw/
- The Conference’s program guide can be accessed and downloaded here. Even better, the conference’s program materials are available here.
If you’re going, drop me a note and I’d enjoy meeting you in person; I’ll be assisting in capacities. Look for updates all week from the program both here and online.
