As part of the seminar, Division 1 and Division 9 (Specialty Contractors and Subcontractors) held a joint breakfast on the Friday morning of the meeting. Division 1 members Roger Jones and Tony Lehman participated in a discussion moderated by Division 1's Scott Griffith to discuss the unique issues posed by multiparty arbitrations.

When people were not listening to the high quality presentations taking place in the meeting rooms, they often sought out their fellow Forum members to enjoy a drink, a meal, or a joke. Here are a few photos taken in Washington, DC, during the meetings.
Rather than hold a formal sit-down dinner, Division 1 opted for cocktails and a view with Division 2. The cocktails and the view were courtesy of the W Hotel's P.O.V. Lounge, which overlooks the Department of Treasury Building and some little residence located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. President Obama chose not to make an appearance to ask Division 1 for ways to avoid the government shutdown, choosing instead to make a phone call to the President of Iran.
