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 Westin Beach Resort & Spa are paid by Constangy.  Additionally, each guest will be able to select one customized spa treatment at the Westin's Heavenly Spa.   

Constangy will cover your room accommodation for Monday night, March 2.  For those wishing to arrive early for the weekend or stay over, 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 Monday, March 2 (the prearranged group discount is $245 per night).  We will make the reservations for these additional nights for you.

BUSINESS CIRCLE PROGRAMMING:

As noted above, the official Business Circle program begins at noon on Monday, March 2, 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 Monday 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.

RSVP:

If you would like to attend the Business Circle Event, please accept by clicking your RSVP, below, no later than February 15, 2015.

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 February 15, 2015,  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 Kim Seten, kseten@constangy.com

Further Logistics and Flight Scheduling:

If you do not plan on attending the optional Monday CLE program, we recommend arriving on your flight no later than 10:00 a.m. on Monday, March 2.  If you plan to attend the optional program, you will typically need to arrive on Sunday evening (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 Tuesday, March 3, 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. 

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This has been a wonderful event and very well received the last several years.  We would love for you to come in 2015, and I hope you can make it!  Feel free to call or email Kim Seten, Teresa Bult, Kristine Sims, or your Constangy attorney of choice, at any time if you have any questions.
