Each ASA webinar will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on the second Tuesday of the month, with the exception of the November 2014 webinar, which is scheduled for the Tuesday after the Veterans Day holiday. The registration fee for each webinar is $99 for members and $179 for nonmembers and allows access with one Internet connection.

The ASA/FASA education catalog also highlights the ConsensusDocs 700 Series of contract documents for subcontractors. ASA is a founding member of the ConsensusDocs coalition, which publishes a library of 100-plus contracts and documents that incorporate best practices and fairly allocate risk to help reduce costly contingencies and adversarial negotiations.
