Are You in Compliance? Do You Know? … WV HEAT And WVHTA To Host A Governmental / Regulatory Update Seminar

August 12, 2004

Charleston, W.Va. – The West Virginia Office of Hospitality Education and Training (WV HEAT) and The West Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association (WVHTA) will co-sponsor a governmental and regulatory update seminar from 8 am to 1 pm at the Summersville Comfort Inn on August 17th, 2004.  

Seminar sessions will include an informational update regarding the most current regulations, legislation, and available services from selected state and federal government agencies and a period for general question and answer. Representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor (profiling new Fair Labor Standards Act regulations), the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration and the West Virginia Bureau of Employment Programs are slated to appear.  

“The Fair Labor Standards Act is of the utmost importance to the hospitality industry and the WVHTA and WV HEAT partnership is yet another avenue for the industry to educate and prepare for the new federal regulations which go into effect this month,” said Carol Fulks, Executive Director for the West Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association.  

“I’m excited to once again partner with the West Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association to further the WV HEAT mission which is to build a quality workforce for the West Virginia hospitality industry through education and training,” said Greg Atkinson, Lead Coordinator for WV HEAT. “Although the August 17th seminar was developed specifically with the hospitality industry in mind, I think that any West Virginia business would certainly benefit from the information that will be presented.”  

The event is open to the public and will include lunch. Advance registration is only $10. Registration at the door will be $15. If you would like to attend, please call the West Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association at 304-342-6511 or email to reserve your space.
