Virginia CLE Conference Delivers Colonial Charm and Lessons in Construction Law

By: Kim Hester

On November 4 and 5, my colleague, Eric Rodriguez, and I attended the 32nd Annual Virginia CLE Construction and Public Contracts Law Seminar, “Mitigating Losses and Impacts on a Troubled Project – A View from Multiple Perspectives,” in Charlottesville, Virginia. Attendees, including ourselves, stayed at the historic Boar’s Head Inn.

This was my third year to attend the conference, and every time I go, I am taken aback by the beautiful fall colors, rolling hills, and relaxed, colonial charm of the venue and surrounding area. Staff members at the Boar’s Head Inn are extremely friendly and helpful, and made the experience very enjoyable. One of my favorite activities while I am there is walking the grounds at dusk and taking in the Thomas-Kinkade-like appearance of the illuminated houses nearby. The atmosphere is truly magical.

Though I definitely enjoyed my leisure time at the Boar’s Head Inn, I also enjoyed the conference and getting to know the many construction attorneys and other attendees. As in previous years, Interface Consulting was a conference sponsor and exhibitor this year. The conference provided many chances to socialize with attendees during session breaks, but the highlight of the networking opportunities was the cocktail reception on Friday evening. Eric and I were able to talk at length with several of the attorneys and get to know them on both business and personal levels.

Once again, the Virginia CLE conference did not disappoint; and the Boar’s Head Inn proved to be a relaxed, but productive, setting for staying abreast of construction and public contract law developments, issues, and solutions. I am definitely looking forward to visiting Charlottesville, Virginia, at next year’s conference!
