To open the event there will be a discussion about the upcoming elections and the legislative session beginning in January, according to the group.

The first of two information panels will speak about insurance requirements and business liability exposures. A second panel will discuss environmental and regulatory issues and compliance requirements. After that panel, association leadership will bring attendees up to date on issues that could negatively affect their business.
