11th Annual Legislative Briefing a.k.a "The Howling"

"The Howling" is right around the corner. Do you care if Interior Designers and Builders get licensed to practice architecture? Do you care about initiatives to police the unlawful practice of architecture? Do you care about the recent, sudden increase in liability exposure placed on architects? Architects are often called to defend themselves against third party damage claims and claims by owners. While some of these actions may have merit, many do not. Would you like to see Certificate of Merit Legislation enacted to prevent frivolous lawsuits against architects?If you answered, "yes" to any of the above questions, you should attend "The Howling". Legislators traditionally give credence to those constituents who actually travel to Lansing and make a personal visit with them and their top staff members. Legislators want to know and discuss issues that are important to their constituents. Then, when you send a follow-up letter or phone call and urge them to vote for, or against, an issue, your feelings are given higher weight and considered more valid.If you do not know your state voting districts, we will locate the proper State Representative and State Senator by your home address. ACEC Michigan will arrange an appointment for each member of each association with Legislators and/or their staff. Confirmation of times will be mailed to you. You can also access the State of Michigan's website to obtain information on your Legislator. Go to www.michiganlegislature.org. For questions please call, ACECM at 517-332-2066.Here's the way the Legislative Day will play out:1:30 - 2:45 p.m Briefing about Licensing and other legislation impacting consulting engineers, surveyors, architects, and other design professionals.
