The program will be presented by Henry L.

Attendees will gain an understanding of their responsibilities and obligations in regards to compliance, as well as the penalties for failing to meet them. The session will also provide comprehensive coverage of compliance topics particularly relevant to the construction industry, as well as strategies to foster a company culture of integrity, which will help construction managers mitigate their exposure to legal risks.
