ALC Annual Conference

Upcoming 2019 Annual Conference

May 1–4, 2019
Omni Shoreham

Washington, D.C.

The 2019 Annual Conference features the third ALC Leaders Forum. Plan on attending the full day on May 1 to be part of impactful discussions and problem-solving on the worker classification issue. Being back in D.C., we reconvene to review federal policy and regulatory issues facing the industry, and to meet with members of Congress and Executive Branch agencies with jurisdiction over relevant issues.
