Master skills in identifying and mitigating risks by attending the
NASBP Contract and Bond Forms Workshop, October 23-24
The NASBP Contract and Bond
Forms Workshop is an integral
component to training for all bond
producers and contractors, developed in collaboration with the law
firm of Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP.
The one-and-one-half day intensive
course will take place October 23-24,
2014, in Dallas, Texas.
Taught by a renowned team of
experts, this workshop covers key
contract bond provisions that affect
the risk profile of any given project.
By the end of the workshop, each
participant will have a heightened
sense of risk awareness and the skills
to identify and analyze those risks.
Highlights include:
* Key contract risk allocation provisions on bond obligations and
liabilities.

* Analysis of standard and statutory
bond forms.
* Review of federal government payment and performance bonds.
* Potential post-completion liabilities
of the surety.
* Warranty and long-term performance liabilities.
* Default terms and remedies.
The registration fee of $895 for
NASBP members/affiliates/associates and $1,990 for non-members
includes class materials, continental
breakfast and breaks, and the reception on Thursday. Lunch and dinner
"on your own" offers a great time to
network with peers. All events will
be held at the Hyatt Regency Dallas,
where NASBP has reserved a block of
rooms at a special rate of $179/night
(plus applicable taxes).

"IT'S ONE OF THE
BEST COURSES I'VE
ATTENDED. IT COVERS
A BROAD SPECTRUM
OF ISSUES OCCURRING
AT ALL LEVELS OF
CONTRACTING AND
OFFERS CRITICAL
INFORMATION THAT
CAN BE SHARED
WITH CLIENTS."
