May Chapter Meeting Workshop

Presentation Description:

This year the LWHRA Programs Committee is trying out a new format for a couple of our chapter meetings. These chapters meetings will be called workshops. They will be half-day events, where attendees can earn up to three re-certification credits!

This May workshop will focus on the topic of harassment. There will be three speakers that will be diving into different aspects of the topic. The event will start at 7:15 AM and attendees will be on the road back to the office by 11:30 AM. LWHRA will provide a light breakfast, snack, and beverages.

Online registration is CLOSED. Thank you to those who attended this event.
