The ADA and Accommodating Employees with Disabilities
What are the legal requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the 2008 ADA Amendments Act and how do these apply to employers?

Wrapping up the session with many interesting real-life examples that could happen in your workplace!  Jennifer Suich Frank, Attorney, Lynn Jackson Shultz & Lebrun, PC 

Personal Ethics and Character Formation
We live in unstable times, with daily reports of fraud, theft and scandal. Much of the current financial crisis can be connected to a breakdown in ethical behavior, but personal ethical breakdowns begin long before they impact “big” decisions. This session will be a practical examination of how small decisions over time lead to personal success or failure.
