    As human resource professionals, business owners, and managers, we are driven to help our organizations and our employees succeed. With the ever-changing environment of employment law, it can be a struggle to find time to comb through legal websites and journals to determine what to focus on to ensure compliance and learn about best business practices.

    The Western Colorado Human Resource Association partners with the attorneys of Bechtel & Santo to provide the most comprehensive employment law review offered in Western Colorado. This conference focuses on significant developments in employment law and regulations that Colorado employers need to know.  WCHRA is committed to bringing you the most relevant, up to date information and direction.  With the uncertainty of the next few months, we are keeping the agenda fluid and will release as soon as confirmed. 


    Bechtel & Santo attorneys provide professional legal services to Colorado businesses, emphasizing employment law. Committed to supporting the HR and employer communities, the firm regularly presents webinars and seminars designed to keep up with the latest changes in employment law and new wage-and-hour regulations. In addition, the firm publishes a quarterly The Employer’s Advisory newsletter with timely information on critical employment-law topics that will keep you one step ahead of the game. WCHRA is grateful for the on-going support of Bechtel & Santo in presenting this annual Conference.

    We invite you to share this with a business professional or colleague who might benefit from the conference as an attendee.  


    Thank you for giving WCHRA the opportunity to support your professional development needs. We look forward to seeing you on May 23rd.
