Maslow Media Group Helps CMMA Celebrate Its 70th Year 

The 2016 Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) National Conference was held Oct. 22-25 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, TN, and Maslow Media Group was there to help celebrate the organization's 70th year.

In addition to fascinating leadership stories, the event featured interactive discussions and case studies on management, technology, and the ever-changing media landscape.

Robert Swan, the first man to walk both the North and South Pole, and whose efforts to keep Antarctica free of exploitation were documented by TED Talks, presented the keynote address, "Leadership in Media."
About Robert Swan

Overtime Rule On Deck: Is Your Company Compliant? 

With a Dec. 1, 2016 deadline looming, many employers are scrambling to prepare for the Department of Labor's new overtime rule, which will double the salary threshold required for overtime pay.

The rule, which is currently being contested by 21 different states, will ultimately result in a reclassification of numerous employees and will require diligent evaluation of payroll and timekeeping processes in order to remain compliant.

If you have questions about compliance, Maslow Media Group has answers. We were named a Top 5 Payroll Company by The Hollywood Reporter, and are committed to staying on top of new compliance laws and regulations, including ACA, mandated sick leave, and more.

Giving Thanks

Maslow Media Group extends our deepest appreciation to our incomparable clients and truly gifted freelancers.

Thank you for all you have done to make MMG what it is today.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
