This one-day seminar will navigate attendees through the construction law overlay to a typical construction project from a general contractor and subcontractor prospective. This will begin with the negotiation of prime contract and subcontract, continue through the project documentation of common project-related claims, and continue through the claims process until resolution of the case through traditional dispute resolution mechanisms (mediation and arbitration/litigation). This moderated narrative will allow conversation and interaction among the participants while touching on the core issues described above and ancillary issues associated therewith. 
  
2020 has been difficult – but we know positive things can come out of difficult situations.  We have learned several things from this crazy year:
  • We can productively video conference over the internet (saving fuel, time and energy).
  • We need to openly discuss the dynamics of our industry.
  • We need each other.
Purpose: To facilitate membership communication in a video conference based roundtable discussion with 10‑15 people about a current topic.

Resources used to create the training were collected from OSHA, CDC, World Health Organization and Texas Health and Human Services.
