With recent regulatory changes impacting our industry, like updates to the Davis-Bacon regulations and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), many of us are trying to gain a better understanding of how these updates could potentially impact projects. How will the Davis-Bacon updates affect federally funded construction work? What are the prevailing wage requirements under IRA-covered projects?

Join us for day-and-a-half of in-person training to get answers to questions like these from industry experts. Sessions will cover hot topics, like the final updates to the Davis-Bacon Act, prevailing wage and apprenticeship requirements for IRA, and an overview of Missouri state prevailing wage requirements.

In addition to educational sessions, attendees are also invited to a networking break where they can meet other contractors, agency representatives, and other industry professionals.
