Idaho Humane Society’s See Stripe Sit

Many of you know about See Spot Walk, which draws thousands of dogs and their people to Julia Davis Park each year for a range of canine-related festivities. Well, it’s about time for the cats to have an event of their own. And since we can’t imagine getting cats together for a walk in the park, we’re calling on all feline fanciers to unite via the Internet.

Introducing SEE STRIPE SIT! This month-long fundraiser kicks off on Feb. 1st. Register at to participate in online weekly cat activity contests and receive a limited-edition coffee mug featuring our 2017 See Stripe Sit artwork by Julia Green Illustration. You will also get one ticket to a little something we’re calling “Sip N Purr” at Cinder Wines on March 1st. We’ll gather there to recognize our participants, sponsors and contest winners, cuddle with shelter cats and, of course, enjoy great wine.

Cost: Members $20.00 ($25 for non-members; $10 for students)

The Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is pleased to present the January program, “2017 Employment Law Outlook Under the Trump Administration,” presented by John Ashby, an employment lawyer with Hawley Troxell.

President-elect Donald Trump will assume office on January 20, 2017. Based on his campaign promises to reduce employment regulations that hurt job growth, we can expect a decidedly pro-business shift in labor and employment policy.

Please join John Ashby as he examines the key employment law issues facing employers in 2017 and discusses how to prepare for the changing landscape under the incoming Trump administration. Topics will include:

  • Workplace policies that were discussed on the campaign trail, and how to prepare for their potential implementation;
  • Likely roll back of regulations and executive orders implemented under the Obama administration;
  • Possible changes to federal minimum wage, overtime and medical leave regulations;
  • Potential repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act.

John Ashby is a partner in Hawley Troxell’s employment law practice group. John represents employers in administrative proceedings and litigation involving claims of wrongful discharge, discrimination, harassment, and fair labor standard practices. He also advises employers on compliance with federal and state employment laws and conducts management training in a variety of employment-related topics. John is a member of HRATV’s Board of Directors and is a co-chair of the Legislative Affairs Committee.

Sterling Education Services: “Landlord-Tenant Law: Lease Agreements, Defaults, and Collections Seminar”

Program Summary:

Home ownership and rental vacancy rates haven’t been as low as they currently are for more than thirty years. That can be great news for landlords, but it also means that finding the best tenants for your property (and protecting yourself when bad tenants slip in) is more important than ever. Uncertain economic conditions and the influx of more baby boomers and families into the rental market mean that you and your clients need strategies in place to write solid leases, provide accommodations, and evict when necessary. Our faculty are familiar with the issues you’re facing every day, so put their knowledge and experience to work and make the most out of the growing rental markets.

Program Highlights:

  • Ethical situations and conflicts of interest
  • How to handle abandoned property
  • Collecting what’s owed to you after the tenancy
  • The latest developments and cases
  • Getting all the steps right in evictions
  • What to do when a tenant is in default
  • Do I have to allow service or emotional support animals?
  • Avoiding discrimination in tenant screening
Who Should Attend:

  • Real Estate Brokers
  • Property Managers
  • Attorneys – Bankruptcy/Debtor/Creditor
  • Attorneys – General Practice
  • Attorneys – Landlord Tenant
  • Attorneys – Leasing and Contracts
  • Attorneys – Evictions
