Last night was the May Fellowship meeting of the San Mateo County AIA at Astaria Restaurant in downtown San Mateo.

The discussion was on legislation and our guest speaker was Mark Christian, Hon. AIACC, Director of Legislative Affairs for the AIA California Council.

Many issues were discussed including the current interpretation of the indemnification clause and what you can do effectively about it in contract negotiations. The recently withdrawn legislation regarding licensing for the interior design profession. And many more.

This was a great oportunity to ask questions regarding these critical issues and discuss the ramifications of  legislation with a professional who knows about it from the inside out, and can speak with authority on these matters in plain language.
