Forum Guide Program

The Forum on Construction Law offers so much to its members – opportunities to hone practice skills, take leadership roles, network with other construction lawyers, and enjoy fellowship and fun.

The Forum's size and complexity can make it challenging to navigate, however, and for that reason, the Forum is launching the Guide Program. Forum "Guides" will be carefully matched with "Explorers" and will facilitate the opportunities and connections the Explorer needs to feel comfortable in the Forum and progress toward the Explorer's goals for Forum membership – which could include:

  • A leadership position in the Forum or one of its Divisions;
  • Developing relationships with others in the same area of practice;
  • Exploring new areas of practice;
  • Being published in one of the Forum's publications;
  • Speaking at a Forum program, or
  • Making connections so that the Forum experience is more satisfying and fun.

If you would like to pair up with a Forum member who can help you find your Forum "home," you are encouraged to become an Explorer. Note that the Guide Program is not just for new lawyers, young lawyers, or new Forum members (although they are all encouraged to join) – it is for Forum members of any age, background, tenure in the Forum, or experience level.

Informational meetings will be held via Zoom on December 8 at 2 p.m. Central, December 10 at 3 p.m. Central, and December 14 at 2 p.m. Central. If you have any questions in the meantime, please e-mail Buck Beltzer at buck@bbglaw.com or Karen Erger at kerger@lockton.com. If all of this sounds good to you, please go ahead and complete this online survey for prospective Explorers, which will enable us to pair you with a suitable Guide: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FCL_Explorer

Here are the Zoom details. Please try to participate via video (rather than just by phone) if possible. Thanks and hope to see you then!
