ATTEND THE GCSA of NEW ENGLAND EMPLOYMENT DAY AT THE WARRIOR ICE ARENA AND THE STOCKYARD RESTAURANT 

DECEMBER 3, 2019

This will be the first winter meeting and last meeting of 2019.  Registration, Bruins practice, a brief Business Meeting and a separate meeting of Friends and Affiliates to discuss the Partnership Promotion Program (PPP) will take place at the Warrior Ice Arena.  The Bruins are scheduled to practice from 11:00 - 11:50 AM.  Though this practice is on the schedule the coach could change this at any time.  

At the Stockyard, lunch, the discussion of employment issues and the raffle will take place.

The budgetary impact of the minimum wage increase and the Family Medical Leave Act will be discussed in an open forum format.  Included will be a detailed look at some real numbers and how the minimum wage increase will affect labor costs and the ripple affect associated with it.  The Family Medical Leave Act will be discussed along with shared ideas on how to prepare for employee absences.

Think about what you can do to prepare for these  changes within your organization.  Bring your ideas to the meeting and share them with others 

Please join us for a deep dive into these new laws that are in effect.  We look forward to your participation in the forum.

Jeff Urquhart will be collecting gently used winter coats that will be donated to those who are not in a position to purchase one.  If you would like to make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate this is a way to make that difference.
