 HEALTH CARE REFORM, CIVIL RIGHTS ACT TOP AGENDA
 AT SHRM 10TH ANNUAL LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE
 Timely and often controversial election issues such as health care reform and the Civil Rights Act will be debated at the 10th Annual Legislative Conference sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Reporters are welcome to attend.
 The conference will be held April 1-3 at the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza at Metro Center, 775 12th St., N.W., Washington.
 "Members of Congress and top policy officials will square off on several high-visibility issues often covered by the news media and political office seekers," said Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR, SHRM vice president for government and public affairs. "Participants will be given the most up-to-date policy information available."
 Highlights include a lively session by political commentators Fred Barnes and Morton Kondracke of "The McLaughlin Group" about election issues, as well as a luncheon discussion of strategies for extending the tax exclusion for employer-provided educational assistance featuring Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Frank Guarini (D-N.J.).
 R. Gaull Silberman, vice chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will discuss EEOC's role in enforcing the new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the new Civil Rights Act of 1991.
 Panel discussions about electronic monitoring, compliance with the ADA and the Civil Rights Act, taxation of employee benefits, health care and OSHA reform are also slated. A workshop will be held featuring Reps. Charles Stenholm (D-Texas) and Steve Gunderson (R-Wis.) to help participants learn the most effective lobbying techniques.
