Promote YOUR Business at Black Diamond Labor Days Celebration

Black Diamond Labor Days (September 3-4) is a great way to reach out to new clients/customers. Each year, the Chamber sponsors a booth and we want YOU (our members) to get your information out to prospective clients. There are many people that attend this 100 year old celebration each year. Take advantage by either having your marketing materials at our booth or better yet, be there in person! Get creative - bring a game for people to play or give away swag with your logo on it. Think of it as an Expo and have fun with it. Sign up for a 2 hour slot at the Chamber's booth and market your business. Ideally, we would like to have 2 different businesses in the booth at any one time. Booth times during Black Diamond Labor Days are Sunday, September 3rd from 10am-4pm and Monday, September 4th from 10am-4pm. There is no cost to participate - just your time.

The Latest on the Temporarty Injuntion of the DOL's Overtime Rule

A federal appeals court will review the temporary injunction blocking new overtime regulations on an expedited schedule that wraps things up even faster than the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) had requested. But it still won't reach a decision until after President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, and that could mean the end of the overtime rule, according to some experts. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted DOL's motion for expedited review December 8. The court scheduled most briefing deadlines as DOL had requested but slated final briefs for January 31, rather than the proposed February 7. (State of Nevada v. U.S. Department of Labor, No. 16-41606 (5th Cir. Dec. 8, 2016))
