The Construction Owners Association of America Illinois chapter (COAA-IL) will host a summer workshop “Contract Update: The New Standard Form Contract Changes and Current Trends” on June 6.
Design and construction contract forms and trends keep changing. The AIA changes its forms every 10 years, and its new 2017 forms were just released. The EJCDC and ConsensusDocs forms change every 5 to 7 years, and they were recently released as well. An all-star cast of speakers will present a lively, one-hour discussion of these new forms and the emerging trends in contracts which will be followed by networking reception with beer, wine and snacks.
Ken Cobleigh, AIA managing director and counsel (via videoconference);
Brian Perlberg, ConsensusDocs executive director and counsel; and
Greg Andre, Justin Weisberg and Ray Krauze, construction lawyers at K&L Gates and authors of numerous books on construction law. Weisberg is also the past chair of the EJCDC.
The program, which includes a networking reception, is from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the K&L Gates LLP conference center, second floor, 70 W. Madison.
Registration is free for COAA owners, and $15 for non-member owners. COAA associates pay $30 and non-member associates $40.
