Texas Business Conference - Texarkana

Friday, June 21, 2019

The Texas Workforce Commission Office of the Commissioner Representing Employers sponsors the Texas Business Conferences, a series of employer seminars held each year throughout the state. Employers who attend the seminars learn about state and federal employment laws and the unemployment claim and appeal process. Speakers guide you through ongoing matters of concern for Texas employers and answer any questions you have regarding your business.

Every employer is encouraged to attend at least one of these conferences every year, since the topics are updated whenever there are new laws, regulations or court cases. Each conference is geared toward small business owners, HR managers and assistants, payroll managers, and anyone responsible for the hiring and managing of employees.  

How to Register for a Conference
You may register in advance online or by mail, or register at the event.  Seating is limited, so we recommend that you register in advance.  Registration over the phone is not accepted. The registration fee is $125 for a 1-day conference, non-refundable. Recommended attire for the event is business casual.
