Best Practices for Reopening Architecture Offices

Webinar + Discussion

Friday, June 19 – 11:00-Noon

Join us for a moderated panel discussion to help you prepare to reopen your office and bring your staff back to work. In addition to the physical issues of returning staff to the office, the panel will discuss the policies you will need to have in place, liability issues to address, and planning for keeping your staff, your clients, and you safe and healthy. We have gathered a panel comprised of architects, legal counsel and risk management experts to address these issues and more.
