Join me at the ABA Labor & Employment Law Conference!

Straight from the Department of Shameless Self-Promotion: Mark your calendars! On Friday, November 6, 2015, I will be a panelist at the 9th Annual ABA Labor and Employment Law Conference. Check out the brochure here (I have taken the liberty of linking you straight to the only page that matters - p. 18, detailing my panel). Or, just read here:
2:15 - 3:30 pm 
Building Your Practice 140 Characters at a Time (T) 
In an era of rampant social media use, many attorneys disregard Twitter as a vehicle for mindless social commentary. Despite this belief, many business savvy employment lawyers are realizing financial gains through active Twitter use. This panel comprises attorneys who have successfully integrated Twitter into their business development and now boast a regular audience of thousands of followers. Hear them discuss the benefits of active Twitter engagement and explain what it can do for your law practice including updates on the law and best practices, commenting on legal developments, linking to concurrent blogs, providing access to presentations and recent decisions, and using Twitter as a valuable source of referrals.

I'm excited to finally meet Dan Schwartz (the "blogfather" of Connecticut Employment Law Blog fame) in person. We've interacted electronically over the past few years, even working on a New York Times best-selling book together, Think Before You Click: Strategies for Managing Social Media in the Workplace (ok, technically it was not on the list; but I'm assuming they just Ted Cruz'd us). I'm looking forward to meeting David Cook too!

So, register today and come on out for a great conference!
