What better way to escape the cold, cloudy days of winter than to join us in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the 2017 Midwinter Meeting of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law’s Employment Rights and Responsibilities (“ERR”) Committee, March 21-25. We look forward to an exciting program offering a variety of panels covering latest developments in labor and employment law, providing the perspectives of all constituencies: management, employee, union, government, in-house corporate counsel, academics and neutrals. This year’s panels promise in-depth analysis of some of labor and employment law’s most difficult questions as well as basic overviews for those just entering the field.
The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta (“PV”) will serve as our home base for our exciting program. It is a wonderful spot located just 15 minutes from downtown PV, with its quaint cobblestone streets with an old-Mexico flair of lively shops, excellent dining and exciting nightlife.
We are delighted that the Ethics and Professional Responsibilities Committee will join us for our programs in Puerto Vallarta from March 24-25. Once again, you will have the opportunity for expansive CLE options, as you may attend Ethics Committee programming in addition to the ERR programs at no additional charge.
As is ERR tradition, in addition to the substantive programming, we will host a number of networking and social events, and you will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the many leisure and sporting activities that PV has to offer, including golfing, sport fishing, whale watching and horseback riding. Walking along the Malecón, the town’s oceanfront promenade, you can enjoy sculptures inspired by local myths and legends surrounding the ocean and take in the beautiful beach that gives way to the blue waters of Banderas Bay. In addition, you can sample a wide variety of cantinas and restaurants offering a range of tasty treats from fresh fish tacos to the finest traditional Mexican cuisine.
On behalf of our ERR family, we hope that you will join us in Puerto Vallarta for this fantastic and distinctive Midwinter Meeting.
