John Watt Serves as Program Co-Chair of ALFA 2022 Construction Law Seminar
Baker Sterchi Member John Watt (Kansas City) is the program co-chair of the ALFA International (ALFA) 2022 Construction Law Seminar, scheduled for July 27-29 in Santa Barbara, California.
The program, titled Sometimes the Third Time’s a Charm: Using Hindsight and Perseverance to Build Into the Future, focuses on the stops and starts of construction projects over the past two years and how hindsight and perseverance can benefit contractors and those in the industry to build better in the future.
Watt’s program co-chair responsibilities include, among other things, vetting program topics, recruitment of moderators and panelist speakers, creating the program outline, assigning client speakers, and hosting the event on-site.
“ALFA is the premier organization for educating our clients on the cutting-edge topics in construction law. I’m very excited to see old friends, make new ones and share this spectacular program with all our guests,” said Watt.
