How ready are you and your business during an emergency or when disaster strikes? Are you prepared to face the worst? Do you have a plan of action in place? Associations can find themselves in peril without proper insurance and financial management, in the midst of a major event, working with a board of directors, or even through cyberspace. Join us as we explore adverse situations and best practices to mitigate risk.

10:15 - 11:15 a.m. - Concurrent Session
Facilitating the Effective Use of Social Media While Limiting Legal Liability
Speaker: John M. Bagyi, Esq., SPHR, SHRM-SCP, Bond Schoeneck & King, PLLC
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram - if you're not familiar with these terms, you're not only "behind the times", you're at risk of putting your organization at an operational disadvantage and exposing it to legal liability. Organizations have countless potential uses for social media - recruiting, applicant screening, marketing, sales - but the use of social media brings with it significant legal risks - risks that employers must anticipate and pro-actively address. This presentation will discuss what employers can and cannot do with regard to social media conduct of applicants and employees, and how to reconcile the business uses of technology with employee relations concerns and associated legal risks.
