In an effort to build a stronger relationship with those who procure professional services, AIA Virginia and the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Virginia have partnered on a joint sponsorship of the Virginia Association of Governmental Purchasing (VAGP) Fall Symposium. The event will be held September 29 – October 1 at the Virginian Hotel in Lynchburg. VAGP represents over 1,100 procurement professionals employed by public entities across the Commonwealth. This year’s Fall Symposium will emphasize professional development in the procurement of professional services and construction.

Matt Gough (Partner at Ames & Gough) and Jonathan Shoemaker (Managing Member at Lee/Shoemaker) will present on behalf of AIA Virginia and ACEC Virginia. The title of the presentation is “We Agree to What?” and will cover problematical indemnity, insurance, and standard of care terms.
