LCT Show East Will Boost Your Brain Power

Posted on June 14, 2013 by

In May, when I attended the briefing session for the NLA’s Day on the Hill trip, I paid close attention to a presentation on Obamacare conducted by Laura Bozell of Cornerstone Government Affairs. Bozell briefed participants on the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act, which requires that large employers supply health insurance for full-time employees or else face financial penalties.

And despite paying close attention I was still confused. Perhaps I’m a little thick, but the requirements of Obamacare are nuanced and confusing. It’s going to take quite a bit of effort on the part of small business to make sure they’re compliant.

Right on cue, the LCT Show East, in conjunction with the NLA, will be offering a session on Obamacare. It’s a hot button political issue where hot air from rival pundits only serves to confuse the public. The Obamacare 101 session is intended to cut through the clutter and get to the facts. It will feature a panel of experts who will unravel this complicated piece of legislature. Expect to hear who the affordable health care provision will affect, how it will impact the industry and your company, and what needs to be done and when in order to be compliant.  

The NLA is still hammering out the details of the educational sessions, but here’s a peak at what they’re working on:

• Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) session on procurement aimed at informing operators on what it takes to be a preferred vendor for corporate travel.

• Anticipating the business travel boom, featuring strategies for taking advantage of the rise in business travel that experts are expecting. 

• Dispatching best practices, offering a fresh perspective on hiring, training, scheduling, and delegating authority.

There is certainly more to come on this, but I wanted to get a bit of a teaser out there. Stay tuned.
