Keynote Speaker at Mid-Year Leadership Conference
Dean Heyl, the US Department of Labor’s Director of the Office of Public Liaison, tops the agenda for the Opening Session and Breakfast during the 2019 Mid-Year Leadership Conference, September 9-11 in San Antonio, TX. Heyl will speak at the September 10 breakfast, scheduled for 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Before joining the Labor Department, Heyl was Chief Legal Officer for the International Franchise Association, where he oversaw all federal, state and local issues affecting the franchise model in addition to providing research and advice on tax issues. In his position at Labor, he is responsible for stakeholder outreach.
Heyl’s talk is only one of the great events featured at the new, expanded MYLC. There is a robust schedule of education sessions, packed agendas for section and committee meetings, and fun fundraising events (a golf tournament, San Antonio River Walk cruise and WQRF Benefit Reception & Dinner).
