Join us for an open discussion about how to expedite payment for your services.


We have assembled a group of local contractors to talk about their experiences with paying subcontractors and the common issues that slow things down.  We all want to be paid as quickly as possible so come and join the discussion.


We will cover topics such as:

  • Important contract clauses
  • AIA billing format
  • Change orders
  • Payroll Reporting Compliance
  • Other Statutory compliance issues
  • Common errors/issues

This is meant to an open forum so bring your questions for our panel.
