    Whether you have a December 2020 goal to complete the exam or you're just want to be ready for some day in the future...

    Kick Off is Thursday, September 10

    Regular Study Group Date/Time To be Determined by the Study Group Participants

    Whether you plan to sit for the exam in December 2020 or beyond, you can begin preparing now, earn hours toward the 100-hours of professional development minimum and take valuable ideas back to your association.  

    In order to thoroughly review each domain of the CAE Exam Content Outline, the study group will meet weekly, in a two hour time slot, for 10 weeks.

    The date/time of each week’s study group meeting will be established based on the consensus of the study group participant’s availability indicated via the survey link below.  Please indicate the most convenient days and times for your schedule.  We understand that not everyone will make every study group.  You will still have a structure with which to work and colleagues to bounce ideas and questions off of each week.

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    As more states legalize the use and possession of recreational and medical marijuana, companies and organizations are left with unanswered questions about how these new laws affect their drug testing practices and drug-free workplace policies.

    - If and when should we test for marijuana?
    - Can drug tests detect whether someone is under the influence of marijuana at work?
    - Must we accommodate off-duty marijuana use under our disability laws?
    - When and how must we engage in the interactive process related to marijuana use?

    During this briefing, our speakers will provide an overview of the problems caused by drug use, the Missouri and federal laws on the subject, and potential liability for employers. We will also provide practical advice on the best HR practices and how to reduce the risk of a lawsuit. 

    Pizza Delivery:
    Talk of marijuana can give us the munchies!  So that everyone can satisfy their hunger and enjoy the presentation, socially distanced, SLSAE will order a pizza to be delivered to your location (as long as you are within a pizza delivery sphere).  During registration, you will have the option to register with a pizza or without, and choose (1) topping.  Deadline to register and receive a Pizza is Friday, September 18 at 5:00 pm.
