Dam Safety 2022: Workshop - Write Right

Full-Day Workshop: Write Right

When: September 22, 2022 from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm Eastern

Registration Fee: $300

This workshop gives technical professionals and others a refresher about grammar rules and usage with examples related to their fields. Participants will practice writing strong, effective sentences that will give them more control of their expression and improve their general writing and editing skills. Importantly, the workshop leader will show participants how they can lessen their vulnerability to liabilities (and resulting lawsuits) caused by vague, ambiguous, and otherwise-faulty language. The workshop is led by a nationally acclaimed expert.

Who Should Attend:
This workshop has been designed specifically for the technical and non-technical personnel of civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, environmental services, construction materials engineering and testing, and similar firms and other organizations, such as government agencies. Firm branch-office and project managers, environmental scientists, graduate engineers, professional engineers, directors of field service, marketing personnel, and others will benefit from improved writing skills.
