MBA, 20 West St., Boston

This event, featuring Regional Director Jonathan B. Kreisberg, is co-hosted by the Massachusetts Bar Association's Labor & Employment Section and the ABA's Regional Subcommittee on NLRA Practice.

Kreisberg is the regional director of the recently enlarged Region 1 for the National Labor Relations Board, covering all of the New England states, and is responsible for all matters arising under the National Labor Relations Act requiring his supervision of field attorneys and field examiners engaged in the investigation and litigation of unfair labor practices, Federal Court litigation and the processing of representation cases.

Kreisberg began his career with the NLRB in 1975 as a law clerk in the Administrative Law Judge's Division at the NLRB's headquarters in Washington, D.C. Upon his graduation from law school in 1977, he served for two-and-a-half years as staff counsel to former NLRB member John A. Penello, then transferred in late 1979 to the newly created Hartford subregional office as a field attorney. In 1985 he was promoted to a supervisory attorney, and in 1988 he became the first regional attorney. He is a member of the bar of the State of Connecticut and the District of Columbia and is a past chair of the Labor & Employment Law Section of the Connecticut Bar Association.

Kreisberg earned his undergraduate degree from the Cornell University School of Industrial & Labor Relations in 1974 and a law degree from the American University, Washington College of Law in 1977.

This meeting is co-sponsored by the Rhode Island Bar Association, the Maine State Bar Association, the New Hampshire Bar Association and the Vermont Bar Association.

MBA, 20 West St., Boston

The Immigration Law Section Council invites you to attend the Immigration Law Section Social on Feb. 13 from 5:15 to 7:30 p.m. at the MBA, 20 West St., Boston. The  guest speaker at this event will be Kate Auspitz, issues director for Congressman Michael E. Capuano, representative, 7th Congressional District of Massachusetts.  

As many practitioners are aware, Auspitz is one of the most helpful congressional aides when a congressional assist is needed. Many are unaware Auspitz is a political historian, Fulbright fellow and Harvard Ph.D. She was an associate professor in Social Studies at Harvard College and taught in the Political Science Department at Wellesley College before leaving academia for practical politics. She now works on foreign policy, immigration and refugee issues.

Auspitz will discuss what a congressional inquiry can accomplish, how to request assistance and, as importantly, what cannot be reasonably expected from an inquiry. In addition, she will bring the latest news as to what is happening on the hill regarding comprehensive immigration reform issues.

Join Immigration Law section members at this special networking reception, where you will have the opportunity to meet fellow practitioners, expand your practice network and connect with colleagues in your practice area.
