Ouch! Can I get a do-over on that last one?  It’s kind of a super-power thing, and since I’m the editor of the newsletter and all, I’m just going to make it happen…

Note from the Director (with a do-over)

Happy Friday! It’s the end of September and Fall is officially in the air.  We have so much to look forward to – cider and donuts, autumn leaves, and the Fall CUE conference in Dallas, where 300 labor and employee relations practitioners will gather to network and share best practices along with some fun.

I’m not going to sell you any more, except to say you should be there if you can.  Click here to join us.    If you are already registered for the conference and can’t make it, please let us know before you cancel your hotel room.  Rooms are very tight, and we want to make sure anyone who registers late gets a room at the Hyatt if possible.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you in Dallas!
