Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the difficulty in traveling, and concerns for our attendees’ and speakers’ safety, we have chosen to cancel LEAP 2020.

Even though we will not be hosting the event this year, all registrants can still access the PowerPoints and other materials provided by the speakers and The HR Specialist (see the links below). Plus, while we had promised all attendees six free months of the HR SPECIALIST: EMPLOYMENT LAW newsletter and our HR SPECIALIST: PREMIUM PLUS online HR information service, you will now receive a full year of each.

We look forward to seeing you at next year's conference ... March 24-26, 2021 back at ARIA in Las Vegas!

Note: If you have any questions, please contact Jo Anne Crowder of our Customer Service team at jcrowder@capinfogroup.com or (800) 543-2055.
