I’m excited to be one of five North Carolina lawyers participating in a series of seminars sponsored by CarolinasAGC aimed at helping the construction industry understand the significant lien and bond revisions passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Perdue earlier this summer.
Over the coming weeks, CAGC is sponsoring five such seminars in Durham, Wilmington, Greensboro, Charlotte and Asheville. CAGC’s website describes each seminar as follows:
This two hour seminar will cover the major, recently enacted revisions to North Carolina’s lien and public bond law statutes. House Bill 1052 and Senate Bill 42 were signed into law this July, and will take effect respectively in January and April 2013. The new laws substantially modify the steps that all parties will have to take to protect their interests — regardless of whether they are an owner, buyer, contractor or sub/supplier. In particular, the new laws impose significant new notice requirements for both public and private work. This seminar will be taught by attorneys that were intimately involved in passing the legislation and will cover in detail what the changes are and what you’ll need to do to protect your interests starting in 2013. Attendees will receive a written summary of the lien laws as amended and a copy of the Power Point
presentation presented and have ample opportunity to ask questions from the presenting attorneys.
The first of the five seminars takes place tomorrow at C.T. Wilson Construction Company in Durham, where I’ll be co-presenting with Keith Coltrain of Wall Templeton. Although the event is now closed to additional attendees, information about the event can be found here.
I’m also co-presenting at the Wilmington seminar on Friday, September 7 with Hank Jarrett of Conner Gwyn Schenck. Location and details to follow.
If you’d like to attend the seminar taking place in Greensboro (August 24), Charlotte (August 31) or Asheville (September 26), details on those events can be found here.
I hope to see you in Durham tomorrow or in Wilmington a few weeks from now!
