R.S.V.P. today for the Massachusetts Bar Association's Second Annual Consumer Advocacy Symposium and Pinnacle Awards, which will be held on Wednesday, November 18, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the MBA's Boston office (20 West St.).

Presented by the MBA's Consumer Advocacy Task Force, this year's symposium will feature two timely panels on food labeling: 1) Litigation over food labeling as "healthy" or "natural," and 2) Legal issues triggered by the mislabeling of seafood.

The symposium will also feature the presentation of the MBA's 2015 Pinnacle Awards, which highlight businesses that have taken proactive steps to benefit consumers in Massachusetts. This year the MBA is proud to honor Market Basket and Fresh Truck. The event will conclude with a complimentary beer/wine networking reception.

The program is free, but space is limited.

About the MBA's Consumer Advocacy Task Force: The MBA's Consumer Advocacy Task Force was established in 2013 to advance the MBA's commitment to protecting consumer rights. Comprised of lawyers from a variety of legal practices, the Task Force is focused on empowering the public by serving as a clearinghouse of consumer protection information for consumers. In 2014, the Task Force created the MBA Pinnacle Awards to recognize companies that employ proactive initiatives for the benefit of consumers in Massachusetts. The Pinnacle Awards will be given out during the MBA's Consumer Advocacy Symposium, an annual event featuring panel discussions on cutting-edge legal issues around consumer interests.
