NEXT YEAR'S EVENT is set for Thursday, September 1, 2016. 



Born out of need and demand, the Seminar is intended to educate and motivate primarily managers and supervisors - in areas vital to being a great manager/supervisor, and dealing with employment matters. This seminar is specifically designed for all levels of managers – from the newly promoted to the senior level in sizes of organizations. In addition, individuals not yet in management can gain knowledge to become a manager. 

As in years past, the participants can choose which concurrent sessions they want or need to attend. The topics are to designed to help managers to do their jobs better and to be able to understand business, employment and human resource functions.This allows the manager to get the desired training that they need, and hopefully, allowing him/her to immediately put into place what he/she has learned at the conference. Our speakers are all knowledgeable in their topics - many are consultants, employment attorneys or specialists in their fields. Speakers are live and will not be by tele-conference, enabling you to have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with our experts. 

In 2014, 322 local managers from the West Central Arkansas area including Hot Springs, Malvern, Arkadelphia, Hot Springs Village, Benton, Bryant, Little Rock and Glenwood attended this award winning event. In 11 years, we have served over 350 companies.
