The Construction Law Foundation of Texas will host educational events, update attorneys about legislation and engage in charitable giving, according to an announcement by the State Bar of Texas Construction Law Section.
The Section’s officers will also lead the foundation. Starting in 2014, the foundation will run the section’s annual conference and other educational events. Revenue from those events will support the foundation’s other efforts.
“The Foundation’s future activities will help assure that revenues generated through the hard work and financial contributions of construction law practitioners who support the educational programs and events will be used to achieve maximum benefit to those in the construction law and construction industry communities for many years to come,” said the Dec. 6 announcement.
The announcement added that section leaders are particularly “excited” about the foundation’s “independence to be governed and directed” by the section.
Section chair Matthew Ryan, partner in Allensworth & Porter in Austin, and vice-chairman William Sommers of The Gardner Law Firm in San Antonio, each didn’t immediately return a telephone call or email seeking comment.
