    The Good, the Bad & the Ugly: How a Bill Becomes a Law and Why You Need to Know

    As an HR professional, we are uniquely positioned to provide insight into and shape the development of federal and state workplace place laws and regulations.  And, as an HR advocate, it is important that we keep our elected officials informed on how public policy issues can affect employees, employers, and the HR profession as a whole.
    Please join us for an advocacy presentation on developing and executing a successful interaction with elected officials in person or through the mail / email. This presentation will focus on the legislative process of the IL General Assembly, how we can impact public policy and why doing so is important.   Key learning objectives include:
    • Steps in the legislative process
    • How and when to become involved in the process,
    • Effective means of contacting legislators.
    Presented by Maureen Mulhall
    Maureen Mulhall has been a contract lobbyist since February 1995 and represents a wide variety of interest groups in the Illinois General Assembly.  Prior to 1995 Ms. Mulhall worked for the state of Illinois as a legislative liaison for various state agencies.  She began her career in government as a Labor Relations Specialist for the Illinois State Police.
