A Day of Social Media for Employers — A Workshop Through WESFACCA

Posted in Human Resources (HR) Compliance, Social Media

850 million people on Facebook can’t be wrong, can they?

A large group of in-house counsel at major Connecticut and New York companies don’t think so.  They understand that social media is not going away and that there are lots of advantages (and risks) to using social media.

WESFACCA (the Westchester and Southern Fairfield county chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel) has planned an entire day of education programs all designed to help companies tackle the issues they face when it comes to social media.  That list is not insignificant. 

The topics for the program include:

  • Social Media & Intellectual Property
  • Social Media in the Workplace
  • Managing Compliance Risks: Privacy, Consumer Protection and Social Media
  • Balancing The Issues: Social Media for the In-House Generalist
  • Social Media and Litigation

And did I mention that the keynote speaker is FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlausen (who was just confirmed yesterday)?

I’m happy to be speaking at the event and my thanks to them for the invite; it should be terrific. 

It is set for May 18, 2012 from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Woodway Country Club, in Darien. 

Registration for members is just $75 (!) and $105 for non-members.  A bargain for a full day of CLE.  You can register and find full details here.
