Leanne Prybylski, Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Siegel, P.C.: "Managing Volatile Material Pricing" (2 CEU) This program provides both practical and legal advice to help roofing contractors effectively manage material shortages and price volatility so that they are not left holding the liability for delays and price increases.It provides suggestions regarding: (i) how to effectively communicate these issues to customers; (ii) language to include in proposals; (iii) language to include in contracts; (iv) contract provisions to avoid; (v) proper and timely submission and approval of substitution requests and managing related warranty issues; (vi) understanding and complying with contractual requirements for providing notice of and submitting claims. 7:30 AM 9:20 AM (Room 203 A)Stephane McShane, Maxim Consulting: "Managing the Lifeblood of Contracting: Cash Flow" (2 CEU) Cash flow is one of the most important issues facing contractors today.As the market continues to stay strong, companies are faced with starting new projects, hiring staff, and investing in assets to support the business.More companies go bankrupt due to cash flow issues than due to profitability.Many things can and should be done to improve cash management practices.We will explore a range of tools and techniques, from simple to complex, that allow firms to manage and control cash flow.Examples include contractual negotiation strategies, pricing and bidding practices, development of cost and resource-loaded schedules that tie to billing activities in the schedule of values, use of 12-week cash flow forecasts, project closeout procedures, and managing the billings and collection cycle. An interactive cash flow simulation provides hands-on experience that enhances the learning outcomes. 7:30 AM8:50 AM (Room 203 B)Heidi Ellsworth, RoofersCoffeeShop: "The Power of Networking" (1.5 CEU) Find the power of networking through an interactive seminar that will cover a variety of ways to improve professional networking in the roofing industry.
