As the construction landscape continually changes during these unprecedented times, many contractors are faced with a wealth of economic uncertainties. Join our panel of experts from leading sureties across the nation as they dive into some of the hottest issues facing the construction industry today. Attendees will also benefit from our live Q&A where we will be answering your questions and helping equip contractors to navigate through challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this interactive discussion we will explore:

  • The current market and how it compares to past recessions
  • How to survive and succeed during a recession
  • The relationship between the surety underwriting cycle, recessions, and contractor failures
  • The ongoing effect of COVID-19 on federal, state, and municipal funding
  • Future work projects and opportunities, and how contractors and sureties can mitigate potential risks
