Contracts & Letters of Agreement

Date: Saturday, November 19
Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
CE Credits: 2 PDH
Description: Communications is an important part of surveying services. Documentation of the agreement and written evidence of the agreement sent to the client is a part of the communication process. The failure of the surveyor to provide proper notification of the agreement to the client may subject the surveyor to discipline and is often a source of liability. This workshop will focus on simple written contracts, contents, and letters of engagement.
