The Associated General Contractors of America is holding what looks to be a great audio conference that contractors should seriously consider attending - "Know the State Laws that Impact Your Construction Contracts." It is hard keeping up with the laws in just one state and having to keep up with laws if your company crosses state lines can be a daunting task. As contractors continue to grow their businesses, expansion is taking them beyond their own state and by crossing those powerful state lines can have a significant impact on project to project. Participants in this audio conference will gain insight into the topics to investigate when considering any new project, techniques to facilitate that process, and actual samples of some resources available to help, including summaries on laws that relate to competitive bids, specific contract provisions, immigration, etc. checklists, of topics and issues to address, that assist you in meeting local laws, and a sample summary of current state laws from the AGC State Law Matrix For more information on this conference visit www.agc.org/StateLaws. The conference is set to begin at 2 p.m. eastern (1 p.m. CST) on November 13. The panel will consist of Thomas J. Kelleher, Jr. Attorney, Senior Partner Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP; Phil Beck, Attorney, Partner Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP; and Jim Bidgood, Attorney, Partner, Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP.
