Bonadio Group Construction Summit West


The Bonadio Group will be hosting its third annual Construction Summit West.

This year’s construction summit will educate and provide upstate New York contractors with the tools necessary to meet the rising challenges in their industry, and is the first of its kind to be held in Rochester, N.Y.

Kenneth Simonson, chief economist for the Associated General Contractors of America, is the keynote speaker for the event. Looking at national trends and providing an analysis of the upstate region, Simonson will present an economic outlook of the construction industry. He has more than 40 years of experience analyzing, advocating, and communicating about economic and tax issues.

The summit, presented by the Bonadio Group’s Construction Division and sponsors Harris Beach, PLLC, and Lawley Construction Solutions, brings national construction topics and discussions to a regional level—integrating strategic training sessions that provide comprehensive and localized content in operation, risk, management, and finance to combat the unique challenges presented by the construction industry. For contractors in the Capital and Hudson Valley regions, Bonadio’s Construction Division is hosting its ninth Construction Summit East on March 21 in Albany.

The summit is scheduled for Thursday, March 28, at the RIT Inn & Conference Center in Henrietta, N.Y. Registration begins at 7:15 a.m., followed by Simonson’s keynote address and workshop sessions that will address the new challenges faced by construction contractors. Topics include business accountability, claims and litigation, maximizing your bonding capacity, and combating tactical weaknesses.

Summit tickets are available for $50 per person, with all proceeds from the event being donated to Flower City Habitat for Humanity. For more information on Construction Summit West or to register, visit or call (585) 381-1000.
