ABA Forum on Construction Law's Reserve Spending Program -- Proposals Due March 2, 2016

Starting in September 2016, the ABA Forum on Construction Law will fund innovative and extraordinary special projects that advance long term benefits or strategies of the FCL, particularly those that fit the Forum’s Strategic Plan. A total of approximately $85,000 will be earmarked for this purpose. In addition, the Forum will fund a total of about $35,000 in innovative and extraordinary special projects that increase or provide supplemental member benefits.

The Forum is calling upon all members to submit ideas and proposals for this exciting new program.  The deadline to submit an application to Joseph C. Kovars (jckovars@ober.com) and Tamara Harrington (tamara.harrington@americanbar.org) is March 1, 2016.   The Governing Committee will review applications at the Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee (April 28-30, 2016).

This is a great opportunity for Division 1 members. Share your ideas with Nick Holmes (D1's Chair) or one of the Steering Committee members in advance of the December Steering Committee meeting.
