So I got my copy of the schedule of events at JLC Live Long Beach next month. There’s a whole host of great clinics and seminars, including of course with all due modesty, my program…but seriously, there are some great things to see and do here. I’ve decided after looking through my brochure, I’m staying for 3 days minimum to soak in all I can…
For me, I’m interested in seeing Michael Byrne’s clinic on waterproofing a Tile Shower, and then I want to attend Waterproof Windows and Doors (I’m interested in the doors more than windows) by Mike Sloggat. I’d also recommend for many of you to attend the Managing Moisture at the Exterior by Andy Engel. Remember, decks and buildings all must be weatherboard built!.
The all day 8-3 sessions have some intense subjects that are very releveant-Automating Your Office With Quick Books and Project management is on Tuesday, on Wednesday the toss up for me is between Managing The Business End of Your Construction Business by Leslie Shiner, or Accurate Estimating and Job Costing by Dennis Dixon.
Then there’s the conference sessions like mine, a shorter 1 1/2 to 2 hour event that crams in more with less detailed infor on the bigger subject…can’t cover everything in 2 hours, but-Essential Contract Elements is a good one for every contractor great and small, Dealing With Difficult Clients is another and the best one for all of us is Understanding The New Building Code in Ca, including q & a with actual live building officials!
Make sure to save time at 430 pm on Thursday to attend the best ever seminar (sic) my Art of Waterproofing Decks! Forgo the Welcome Party starting at 5 to learn about waterproofing, who needs beer when a subject this interesting comes along?
Friday features a quickbooks short course and then I’ll be heading back home to SLO town.
Sign up today for full day courses, it’s by reservation.
