AAPEX Learning Forum adds session on healthcare reform

A new session, “Confused About Healthcare Reform? What Employers Need to Know,” has been added to the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Learning Forum educational lineup on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. AAPEX is slated for Nov. 5 through Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev. 

Speaker Kelly Davis, employee benefit specialist at the accounting firm

CliftonLarsonAllen, will provide an overview of the law and focus on key issues that will impact companies and their employees. The session will cover what employers need to do to comply with the new law, an update on recent changes or delays, how penalties and insurance exchanges will affect business, employer reporting requirements, and what employers should be doing in 2014 to get ready for 2015.

With this information, employers can develop strategies to keep healthcare costs down to protect profit margins and ultimately grow their business. The session is offered at no cost and is recommended for all aftermarket audiences, including employers and employees.

This year’s Learning Forum will feature nearly 40 free sessions, the highest number ever offered at AAPEX. Sessions will begin on Monday, Nov. 4 – the day before the official start of AAPEX – and continue through Nov. 7. Attendees are encouraged to make their travel plans accordingly.

All sessions are accredited by the University of the Aftermarket toward the Automotive Aftermarket Professional (AAP) and Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional (MAAP) professional designations. Sessions will be held at the Venetian Hotel, on the Venetian/Palazzo Congress Center Level 1, Marco Polo Rooms 701-707. Since the sessions are free-of-charge, seating is first come, first served.
