Philip A. Miscimarra—appointed chairman of the National Labor Relations Board by President Donald Trump on April 24—will be the featured speaker at Inland’s Human Relations Management Conference Wednesday, May 17.

HR Management Conference attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to learn about the NLRB’s future approach to the many issues affecting newspapers from Chairman Miscimarra himself at this session.

Philip Miscimarra was first appointed by President Obama to the NLRB in April 2013 and approved unanimously by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pension. He was confirmed by the full Senate in July 2013.

For Chairman Miscimarra, the talk at the HR Management Conference will represent a homecoming to Chicago, where from 1987 to 2005 he was a labor and employment attorney with Seyfarth Shaw LLP.

Seyfarth Shaw’s expert labor and management-side attorneys will speak on the many issues facing newspaper human relations professionals during an entire afternoon session on Tuesday, May 16.
