Presented by: Kent Stair, Esq. of Copeland & Stair, LLP; and Colleen M. Palmer, Esq. of Beazley Group
Please RSVP by clicking here.
What You Can Expect:
In this highly informative session you will learn about the three risk management building blocks that should be put in place to defend your interests as your project moves from beginning to end.
- Defining and understanding the project, which establishes your role in the project and reasonable expectations you should have concerning the project and the roles of others;
- Recognizing and managing critical changes, which identifies ten critical features of the project to watch as it progresses, so that when any/all of them start to “move,” you can react in a timely and prudent way; and
- Effectively documenting the course of the project, and why it should be part and parcel of the first two building blocks: defining and then managing change in your project.
You and your staff will leave this seminar better-equipped with real world tools to protect the integrity of your project. Join us for this valuable 90-minute seminar where you and your staff will also have an opportunity to:
- Learn about some of the most important risk management issues design professionals face;
- Discuss how your firm handles risk management issues and concerns as they arise on projects;
- Explore ways your firm can improve risk management practices on future projects;
- Ask questions to the presenters; and
- Qualify for premium and continuing education (C.E.) credits (as applicable).
How it works:
This webinar will be delivered on the GoToWebinar platform. You will need a computer with a high-speed Internet connection to participate. Audio can be accessed either through your computer or telephone, but sound quality may be more reliable via a landline telephone.
- Beazley will provide ONE connection free of charge to each participating firm or broker.
- You have the choice to connect at your desk or in a conference room, allowing for multiple participants with a single connection.
- If you require additional connections [within one office or for other locations], there will be a $99 fee for each additional connection.
- Registrants will receive a confirmation email with pre-testing instructions to eliminate last-minute technical issues. Two days prior to the program, another email will be sent with the connection instructions and a link to the program materials (attendance forms, PowerPoint handout, program evaluation, etc.). Please download the materials prior to the webinar.
Continuing Education (C.E.) Credits:
Three weeks after the program a group Certificate of Completion will be e-mailed to you, based on the site coordinator’s electronic Attendance Sheet. Engineers, architects and other professionals may be able to earn C.E. credits for their program participation.
Synthesis Partnership is a national provider of continuing professional education webinars, and is an approved provider in Florida, Louisiana, and North Carolina. Note that this topic will not meet New York’s strict subject matter criteria for professional education credits.
For all other states with mandatory continuing professional education requirements, it is the engineer’s responsibility to determine whether this activity meets the requirements set forth by his/her state licensing board. We can advise that most of those states have adopted the following subject matter criteria in awarding credits: “A course or activity whose purpose and objective are clear with a content that will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge of the licensee’s field of practice”. Synthesis Partnership believes this program will meet these subject matter criteria.
AIA members can log-in and self-report their participation in this program on AIA’s web site,www.aia.org, as a “structured self-reported program”. For the individual state licensing boards, it is the architect’s responsibility to determine whether this activity meets the various guidelines set forth by those state boards where he/she is registered.
