The meeting usually begins with a short presentation on a construction law "current event," followed by a discussion of the various ways in which Division members can become more active in the Forum. Getting Involved Division 5 is continually on the lookout for those wanting to become more active in the Forum. One of the best ways to get involved is to attend one of the Division Meetings or telephone conferences, learn what Division 5 is all about, and volunteer to get involved. Another way to get involved is to contact a Steering Committee Member and let them know you are interested. The Division 5 Steering Committee meet face-to-face at each Fall Meeting.

Division 5's iO Theater Outing - 9:00 p.m. Hotel Lobby

October 5, 2016
Division 5 has reserved tickets for the Wednesday night performance of TJ and Dave at the iO Theater in Chicago (during the Fall Meeting). Bill Murray describes the iO Theater as “the most important group work since they built the pyramids.” With alums that include Tina Fey, Seth Myers, Amy Poehler and Stephen Colbert, iO Theater is the place for improv comedy. For our show, improv legends TJ Jagodowski and Dave Pasquesi improvise a one-hour play filled with elaborately imagined characters whose relationships reveal the wildly funny quirks of human nature. The Group will assemble in the hotel lobby at 9:00 p.m. to head over to the show. Space is limited. Tickets will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and are $10 apiece. Please contact Carla Garcia at or 703-847-6282 to secure your tickets. Don't miss your chance to see this fantastic show -- it is unlike anything you will see elsewhere.
