BreakfastRoundtableHeader

Join us for the first SEGD Chicago Breakfast Roundtable, offering EGD professionals an opportunity to engage in conversation on challenges, opportunities and best practices in our industry.

This month's topic:

“Yikes WHO did that?” Clarity, Conviction and CCO’s - (Critical Change Orders that is).

Sharon Brooks of South Water Signs (An experienced SEGD and industry partner with a BFA in Graphic Design) will share her expertise on the questions we should be asking during the project process: What do the specs say? Re-submit the submittals? And you’re delivering, when?

Hosted at the offices of Valerio Dewalt Train Associates, located in the historic Boyce Building in the vibrant River North neighborhood.

Come for breakfast, coffee, and a great learning opportunity!
