Elarbee Thompson Attorney Josh Viau Named Chair of State Bar of Georgia Labor and Employment Law Sec

Elarbee Thompson attorney Josh Viau has been named chair of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia.  Viau began his term July 1, 2011 and will chair the committee for one year.

The State Bar of Georgia’s Labor and Employment Law Section focuses attention on all areas of labor/management-employee/employer relationships through continuing legal education and received the award for the Georgia Bar’s Section of the Year last year.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to chair the Labor and Employment Section,” said Viau.  “We have done some really good things under our previous leadership and I hope to continue that trend.  A few years ago, we decided that we needed to expand our reach to involve lawyers from different parts of the state and last year held successful events in Savannah and Tifton.  I hope to continue that trend in the next year.” 

Viau adds: “I am looking forward to continuing our work with the talented lawyers serving as the Section’s officers and the members of the Section.”
