Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
In less than two weeks, WPL Publishing will sponsor a webinar to help professionals within the construction community prepare for mediation.
Mediation has been widely adopted in the U.S. construction industry as a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and often is employed when claims negotiations fail to reach resolution in lieu of arbitration or litigation. Webinar speakers will discuss mediation as a process and why construction professionals need to learn more about it. They will examine good and bad points concerning the use of mediation and offer several practical suggestions on how to prepare for and be successful in mediation. To register for the 90-minute event, scheduled for Wednesday, April 23, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/onyqmfd.
During the webinar, entitled “Preparing for Mediation,” attendees will be able to do the following:
- Gain a better understanding of why construction professionals may want to use mediation as an ADR process when dealing with unresolved claims.
- Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the mediation process.
- Learn the importance of mediation and how to prepare for it.
- Understand how mediators operate at mediation.
- Know how to function while in a mediation session.
Addressing attendees will be Michael Pettinella, an associate director in Navigant Consulting's New York City office, and Navigant Construction Forum Executive Director James Zack.
Following their presentations, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/onyqmfd.
