The CSI Academy is holding a one-and-a-half-day conference on risk management from April 26 to 27 at Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile, Chicago. The event features two tracks of focused educational content—Project Conception and Project Execution.
Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals, as well as individuals who are new to risk management, implementing a risk management plan, or wishing to be familiarized with the general terminology and best practices, are expected to attend the event.
The conference includes dedicated pre-event programming with fellow participants on the basics of risk management and its benefits to the overall project.
Timothy J. Corbett, BSRM, MSM, CERG, LEED GA, Allied AIA, Kimberly Kozak, PE, PMP, RMP, and Andrew D. Mendelson, FAIA, will speak at the event.
A variety of topics will be discussed, including:
- pitfalls and problems facing the AEC industry;
- managing design and construction risks;
- construction insurance;
- project team risks;
- risks passed from design to construction;
- universal risks one must plan for;
- risks affecting the public;
- top 10 risks affecting construction projects today; and
- risks of labor shortages in the United States.
Registration is open to industry professionals, with discounts for CSI members. Participants receive forms, templates, and risk management plan materials, as well as up to 12 professional development hours (PDHs) towards CSI certification renewal.
