Virtual Construction Conference

December 15, 2020 8:30 am — 12:00 pm

Out of concern for the health and safety of our conference attendees, speakers and staff, we are hosting our Annual Construction Conference in a virtual format.

This complimentary conference is specifically designed to provide valuable insight and best practices to help businesses in the construction industry succeed.



Featured Presentations

Construction Outlook 2021: What’s on the Horizon
Now that the elections, for the most part, are over, what does the future hold for the construction industry?  What are the pending legislative and regulatory issues that will positively or negatively impact construction?  How will the uncertainty with COVID-19 impact private investment and contracts?  Will Congress and the White House finally settle on an infrastructure plan to boost job growth?  Join us as we wander through these and other topics as they relate to 2021 and beyond.
Brian Sampson, President of Associated Builders and Contractors, Empire State Chapter

Accounting and Finance Update
In this 30-minute session, we will provide a brief overview of recent accounting pronouncements and other changes affecting financial reporting and accounting for the Paycheck Protection Program.
Kenneth C. Gardiner, Dannible & McKee
Benjamin A. Sumner, Dannible & McKee

Prevailing Wage Supplements:  The Do’s and Don’ts
In this presentation we will discuss the steps you can take to strike the balance between employer competitiveness and employee satisfaction, while remaining compliant. We will also discuss the new fringe supplement transparency rules and how to utilize annualization to your benefit.
Tom Santa Barbara, AIF, CPFA, DirectAdvisors

Planning for Tax Increases
With the election behind us we can plan for what taxes may look like for 2021, and it is not good.  We are looking at a rollback of all the tax reductions from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.  We will be discussing possible ways to reduce the impact, including recognition of taxable income in 2020, as well as the impact of the SECURE and the CARES Acts.
Joseph Hardick, Dannible & McKee
