Check out the Legal Advisory Committee (LAC) Q4 Newsletter!

During the first quarter of 2024, our Legal Advisory Committee (LAC) held three Board meetings where three MCLE (legal continuing education) presentations and three case laws were presented. We also launched a Construction Law Series where members of our committee presented AB 594 and AB 334. We urge all member companies, particularly those with general counsel on staff, to join the LAC to network and discuss pertinent construction industry issues. Law professionals of our contractor or specialty contractor members can now join the LAC for free! If you are interested in joining or learning more about the LAC, contact Mary Alyssa Rancier, Policy Manager, at RancierM@agc-ca-org.
