In our efforts to become more involved in Wichita Area Construction, the Greater Wichita NAWIC Chapter 120 is hosting an interactive seminar on May 20, 2014 with representatives from all walks of our industry. The seminar will provide panel discussions with experienced and knowledgeable delegates speaking about issues facing various types of building projects.
We have arranged for prominent individuals representing project owners, large general contractors, medium to small contractors, sub-contractors, architects, and engineers for the morning session to share their knowledge with us on a variety of topics. Our afternoon session will encompass Rules, Regulations and Legalities influencing the industry. The panel includes experts from a construction company, an environmental/geological organization, an OSHA safety instructor, a contract review lawyer, an insurance/risk management lawyer and director of the Wichita/Sedgwick County MABCD (Metropolitan Area Building and Construction Department). Mike Gibson, EVP of AGC of Kansas, will be serving as our moderator for both sessions
Lunch is included in the registration. BBQ is on the menu. Our lunch speaker will talk to us about “The Drug Culture – What Construction Professionals Need to Know.” There will also be time for phone calls and email checks. Free Wi-Fi will also be available.
Participation certificates will be available for each session (total of 7 hours). Although the State of Kansas will not pre-approve this seminar we believe that the content will qualify as “continuing education.”
Please see the attached Construction Day 2014 Flyer for more details. We hope you will join us as these sessions have been structured as an opportunity to discuss the issues that impact our careers and our industry. To that end the registration forms contain the opportunity for the registrant to provide input on discussion topics.
We hope to see you there.
