Join us on June 4, 2019 for STA’s Annual 2019 Membership Meeting at the Manhattan Manor for Impact 2019: Contract Clause Impacts on Your Projects.

Participate in an intensive discussion with several of New York’s leading legal professionals and association general counsel moderated by STA Legal Counsel Henry L. Goldberg, Esq. to better understand how contract management is becoming as important as project management for project success. 

With industry legal experts at the table, take-away practical strategies and insights on how specific contract clauses – even those that you considered non-negotiable – can be managed to mitigate risk and increase project success and profitability. 

The goal of this engaging industry-wide discussion is to share industry insights on specific contract provisions and related legal issues that impact subcontractors’ projects, businesses and their bottom line. The discussion also addresses how subcontractors – regardless of trade – can better position their firms during the contract negotiation phase of a project for both public and private sector projects.
