ACAAA Board Meeting/Training • July 20 – 21

The Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA) Board of Directors is having a two-day board meeting/training session on July 20-21 at the offices of Wright Lindsey Jennings, 200 West Capitol Avenue — Bank of America building — in Little Rock.  (Scroll down to the bottom of the page for information about possible accommodations.)

A full Board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, July 20, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m.; the same day will also see an HR Affiliate meeting beginning at 11:00 a.m.

On Thursday, July 21, there will be a special training session, “HR Focus: Wage, Overtime Rule & HR Hot Topic Training,” from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Attend this session for an in-depth review of the new federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rules and other wage and hour challenges facing CAAs. In this scenario-based, interactive session we will address options for compliance with the new rules and explore other ways for CAAs to reduce wage and hour liability. Topics covered will include: new overtime rules; classifying exempt and non-exempt employees; using unpaid interns and volunteers; and, time permitting, other FLSA topics.  Click here for a flier that includes a tentative Thursday training agenda.
