    Prequalification is essential to a successful project. What could be riskier than hiring a new, unfamiliar contractor or subcontractor? One bad egg could affect the project schedule, the quality of performance, project safety, and it could even determine whether payment disputes will occur. Establishing a prequalification process can help contractors, subs, and suppliers minimize risk.

    Join us for a moderated panel discussion and comprehensive 360 degree look at the prequalification process. Hear from industry experts on all aspects that should be considered, form all points of view.

    Panelist:

    Subcontractor: Tamara Kilty, CFO - All-Bry Construction, SBK Building Restoration and Sandsmith Masonry
    General Contractor: Joy Perryman, Director Risk Management, Skender Construction
    Developer: Erin Spears, President, Fifield Companies
    Finance/Banking: Trey Meers, Senior VP Real Estate Services, Wintrust

    Moderated by: Dave Sauerman, Managing Director, CIBC
