If you are interested in participating, please dial 866-646-6488, Passcode: 2402402336#. Contact the Division 5 Chair, Marilyn Klinger, if you are interested in attending, presenting, or if you have any questions.

Committee Meetings Division 5 has begun holding Breakfast or Lunch Meetings at each of the Annual, Fall and Mid-Winter meetings for all of its members, typically the Friday of each meeting. 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. If you are interested in participating, please email Division 5 Chair, Marilyn Klinger,
