I am happy to have been asked to speak at this year’s CDLA Annual Conference, July 26th through 28th, in Crested Butte. William J. McConnell, PE, of Vertex Engineering, and I will discuss common building code violations alleged in construction defect cases and how to respond to these allegations.
In an effort to adjust the conference to meet the needs of its membership, this year the CDLA has modified the format to afford more breakout sessions in various specialized areas of practice. In addition to the general sessions, the sub-committees have put together eight hours of education in each respective discipline that should enhance your practice for years to come.
To sign up for this outstanding event, you can download a registration form here. I look forward to seeing you in Crested Butte!
