DETROIT, Mich. – Automotive suppliers help drive the industry, yet follow an endless road of obstacles to meet and exceed demand. Butzel Long, with its long history of serving automotive suppliers, is teaming up with the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA) to host two educational programs designed for C-suite automotive supplier executives and Human Resources team members.

The events include:

  • August 29 -- “The ‘Law’ of Strategic Talent Attraction / Retention,” will take place from 7:30 a.m. to Noon at the VisTaTech Center at Schoolcraft College in Livonia. This event is designed to provide suppliers with insight and ideas, from a legal prospective, on how to better attract and retain talent in the automotive workplace. The event will feature Butzel Long attorneys Arthur Dudley, Andrew Stumpff, Daniel Tukel, James Rosenfeld, Linda Armstrong, Paul Mersino, Rebecca Davies, Reginald Pacis and Sheldon Klein.
  • September 14 -- The annual “OEM Terms and Conditions and Legal Issues” event will take place from 7:30 a.m. to Noon at the MSU Management Education Center in Troy or via live webinar. Attendees will be provided with information on new OEM terms and conditions, updates in the law, and advice and information on thorny commercial contracting issues. The event will feature Butzel Long attorneys Cynthia Haffey, James Bruno, Daniel Rustmann, Sheldon Klein, Bruce Sendek, Brian Seal and Jennifer Dukarski.

“Automotive suppliers are facing a talent shortage, often losing out to west coast driven industries,” said Cynthia Haffey, co-chair of Butzel Long’s Global Automotive practice. “On August 29, we will discuss the tools automotive suppliers need to attract and retain key talent, especially engineers.

“Notably, on September 14, we will present our annual and much anticipated, OEM Terms and Conditions and Legal Issues event that will provide key updates to the law and more.”
