World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

The theme for the 2017 World Championship Cardboard Boat Races is DC versus Marvel. Race participants will stretch the limits of their ingenuity to design boats that represent their favorite DC or Marvel comic. Whether the choice is Spiderman, The Hulk, Thor or Wonder Woman, these cardboard crafts are sure to be amazing feats of engineering. 

 

Boat registration will begin at 8:00  am on Saturday July 29th at Sandy Beach on Greers Ferry Lake in Heber Springs, AR. Boat races will begin at 10:00 a.m., with timed heats for both children and adults. The Pride of the Fleet Prize will be awarded to the boat that best combines innovative engineering with artistic design, while the Captain’s Award goes to the team with the greatest spirit and crowd involvement. And of course, the Titanic Award is reserved for the boat with the most dramatic sinking. There’s plenty of additional fun planned for the day, with a treasure dig and a watermelon-eating contest.

Enjoy the spectacular surroundings of Heber Springs, a jewel of a town located just 60 miles north of Little Rock, on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

Fall Member Lunch

Fall Member Lunch

Come join us for lunch, networking and new information on the medical marijuana law to help insure workplace compliance. Register by September 8th to reserve your seat.  Registrations are $15 per person.

 

"Workplace Compliance with the Medical Marijuana Law"

When the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment (AMMA) was passed last fall, it appeared to create more questions than answers for employers. The AMMA prohibits employees from ingesting marijuana or coming to work "under the influence" of marijuana. Yet the AMMA failed to address key issues for employer compliance, such as defining "under the influence." Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon, & Galchus, P.C. recognized these employer compliance issues, and played a key role in drafting a bill to clarify the employment provisions of the AMMA. On March 29, 2017, the Governor signed the bill into law. The new law created key definitions and clarifies how employers should implement their drug testing policies. In this presentation, I will discuss how employers can update their substance abuse policies and job descriptions for compliance with the new medical marijuana law.

Guest Speaker

Jennifer S. P. Chang,
Associate Attorney in Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon & Galchus, P.C

Jennifer and other members of CGWG co-drafted a bill to clarify the Amendment’s employment provisions, which was enacted as Act 593 of 2017. Jennifer also assists healthcare organizations with compliance issues, including credentialing.
