We are pleased to extend this exclusive invitation to Constangy's Ninth Annual Women's Network Business Circle Event, scheduled for February 27 - February 28, 2014 at the FireSky Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona This is an invitation-only CLE and spa event.  We hope you will join us!

Space is limited, so please RSVP no later than Friday, December 20, 2013.


The Women’s Network

Constangy’s Women's Network is actively involved in providing internal and external networking opportunities for our women attorneys, clients, and potential clients.  Our annual spa & CLE event is a way to bring women together in a "Business Circle" to participate in CLE, share ideas, and connect with not only Constangy women, but in-house counsel and HR executives in other companies.  We have many clients (and non-clients) who attend our event year after year, and those women can tell you it is a relaxed, informative and entertaining two days.  We attempt to keep the group size to less than 50 women, and most of these women are, like you, high level Human Resources professionals or in house employment/labor attorneys.

Your Acceptance Includes The Following

Constangy pays for almost all the expenses related to the event, including up to $250 in the costs associated with either your plane ticket or mileage if you are driving from home to the event.  All planned meals at FireSky are paid by Constangy.  Additionally, each guest will be able to select one customized spa treatment at FireSky’s Jurlique Spa.   

Constangy will cover your room accommodation for Thursday night, February 27th.  For those wishing to arrive early or stay over the weekend, we have arranged for you to take advantage of our group discount rate for those extra days.  Please let us know (by selecting the option on the RSVP form) if you want accommodations earlier or later than Thursday, February 27th (the prearranged group discounts are as follows: Wed - $229, Fri - $244, Sat - $259).  We will make the reservations for these additional nights for you.

As noted above, the official Business Circle program begins at noon on Thursday, February 27, with lunch followed by CLE.  We strive to provide our guests with very targeted, relevant CLE programming on various employment-law related topics.  We typically send our guests the full CLE agenda once it has been finalized.

We also offer an optional Thursday morning CLE program, for a small fee of $100. This program starts at 8:30 a.m., and typically includes more nuts and bolts employment training. 

You may indicate your desire to attend this optional session by selecting the option on the RSVP form.


If you would like to attend the Business Circle Event, please accept by clicking your RSVP, below, no later than Friday, December 20, 2013.


Courtesy Request:

The only significant request that we make of our guests is that if you RSVP, you commit yourself to make a "real" obligation to actually attend (absent exigent circumstances, obviously).  Invitations to this event are highly sought-after, and we have a lengthy wait list.  If you cannot come or your plans change, please let us know right away, so we can extend the invitation to others.

Please know, however, if for some reason you just cannot finalize your plans by Friday, December 20, 2013,  we can likely provide you additional time to solidify your schedule or put you on the wait list in case another guest be required to change their plans.  In that case, just email your Constangy contact, or Teresa Bult, tbult@constangy.com

Further Logistics and Flight Scheduling:

If you do not plan on attending the optional Thursday CLE program, we recommend arriving on your flight no later than 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 27.  If you plan to attend the optional program, you will typically need to arrive on Wednesday (and indicate your need for an additional hotel night on the RSVP form).

The event officially ends around 1:30 or  2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 28, after lunch.  Thus, if you are arranging flights back out, something after 3:30 p.m. is probably safest.

After we have finalized our guest list and received all RSVPs, we will send a follow up email with more specific logistics for the event. 


This has been a wonderful event and very well received the last several years.  We would love for you to come in 2014, and I hope you can make it!  Feel free to call or email Teresa Bult, Kristine Sims, or your Constangy attorney of choice, at any time if you have any questions.
