1.5 CES LUs
On February 13, 2014 David E. Barker, Esq. and Liam Knepprath-Malone, Esq. will present a Seminar entitled “So You Want To Run An Architectural Firm?”. This seminar will go over a number of business issues that architects face on a regular basis. More than the contracts, indemnity, and standard of care seminars that we frequently see, this seminar touch on aspects such as CAB requirements for your license; business structures, what is allowed and not allowed and how they work; insurance considerations; intellectual property; contracts; and employment issues.
As a brief overview on each of these subjects, this will be an interactive seminar encouraging questions and addressing some of the business elements that all architects face in their practice. This seminar will help not only the firm owners, but also employees of firms to understand the various requirements on their firms and how all of these pieces work together.
