With legal marijuana just around the corner, employers need to be aware of their rights and responsibilities. Organizations and HR professionals need to answer questions regarding acceptable level of use, required policies and procedures, and violation of rules. Using the “Workplace marijuana possession/use” case study, Adam Czarnecki will lead a discussion on the myths and realities of cannabis usage in the workplace, including types of cannabis products, medical marijuana, recreational uses, human rights vs privacy vs safety, and workplace readiness.
HR in a Box workshops are hands-on, with an emphasis on group discussion and case studies. Each session provides opportunities to share ideas, work together on strategies, develop practical solutions to real issues, and take away tips and tools to implement at your workplace. Some sessions may involve pre-reading.

The Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations is partnering with the Government of Alberta and the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission to deliver a bylaws session for non-profits registered under the Societies Act. Representatives from non-profits will gather for one evening to explore bylaw requirements, recommendations, and proven practices.
This session will be an in-depth exploration of the areas that you need to cover, key questions your board and membership need to answer, and recommendations on how to structure your bylaws to support your organization in moving forward.
Attendees of the session will be able to ask the experts present questions directly related to their organization.
You will walk out of the session with a deeper knowledge of bylaws, how they are structured, key clauses that you need to include and a series of questions that you will need to explore with your organization. This will provide you with the framework to update, change, or create your next set of bylaws. You will be provided with resources, templates, and a set of proven practices to help you modify, edit, or build your next set of bylaws.
Additionally, participants will be able to submit their bylaws for feedback and comments after the session.
If you have any questions feel free to email David Feldman at email@example.com or Call 780.801.1054
