Devine will touch on how and when to defend your company’s CVOR, what to do when your drivers recieve a traffic ticket and when to enter a plea of guilty. She will also go into the legal aspects regarding human rights complaints and medical marijuana.

The second topic will cover how to effectively use social media.  Erin Mares of BeBranded, will cover the in’s and outs of how to effectively engage your customers and potential customers using social media.
