An AMFP NYC Chapter Event

4:30-5:00 PM ET - Virtual Networking Breakout Rooms
5:00-6:00 PM ET - Discussion


Our NYC chapter hosts this series of programs that is both topical and conversational. These meetings start with some networking, move into informal discussions with selective guests, and end with questions and answers between members and the speakers. Topics have included; issues facing MWBE firms, how to get on owner's preferred vendor lists, and what’s being pushed off owner’s plates due to COVID to name a few. Help us plan upcoming AMFP CONVERSATIONS by letting us know what issues you are facing in Healthcare Facilities.

Our next AMFP CONVERSATIONS event will be November 18th 4:30 - 6:00 PM ET. We are inviting representatives from healthcare facilities who will partake in a candid, humorous, and educational discussion about mishaps at the jobsite and how we learn from them. What are some of your war stories?
