Message from the Chairs

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

It has been about a month since the conclusion of our Midyear Meeting in Buenos Aires. We were delighted that our first venture to South America was a smashing success, which is a tribute to so many people, including the Host Committee, our sponsors and panelists. The programing was terrific, starting with a keynote speech by the U.S. Ambassador to Argentina and finishing “on a high” thanks to our panel on cannabis. Not enough good things can be said about the receptions hosted by the local firms and the closing gala dinner in the most wonderful of venues. In between, we enjoyed Tango, touring and Malbec. Another wonderful development from this year’s meeting is this special edition of the newsletter, as several attendees from Mexico volunteered to write articles describing the recent monumental labor law reform in Mexico. Please enjoy them.

Warm regards,

Clare Murray (International Co-Chair), Owen Herrnstadt (Union & Employee Co-chair), David Garland (Employer Co-Chair) & Katherine Blostein (Employee Co-chair).
