MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Due to an overwhelming response of registrants, an extra seminar aimed at educating farmers and other employers about the state's new immigration law has been added to a meeting in Birmingham, Aug. 3.

The seminars are being conducted by Alabama Employers for Immigration Reform (ALEIR), of which the Alabama Farmers Federation is a member. ALEIR will educate employers about how the new law will impact their businesses.

Dates and locations of the ALEIR seminars are:

  • Birmingham, Aug. 3 at Rosewood Hall, Soho, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (REACHED CAPACITY)

  • Montgomery, Aug. 17 at the Gordon Persons Building Auditorium, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
  • Huntsville, Aug. 31, to be announced

A question-and-answer session will follow each seminar. The registration fee is $25.

The seminars will feature attorneys from Maynard, Cooper and Gale; Capell and Howard; Balch and Bingham, and Bradley, Arant, Boult and Cummings.

Another seminar is set for Saturday, Aug. 6, at 11 a.m., during the Federation's Commodity Producers Conference in Huntsville. It will feature Paul Schlegel of the American Farm Bureau Federation; Ted Hosp, an attorney with Maynard, Cooper and Gale in Birmingham; and Dan Bremer with Ag Works Inc., which helps farmers find temporary or seasonal workers.
