Lien Information – SAM collects information on Liens Filed in Dallas, Tarrant, and Collin Counties. We review this information at every monthly meeting, and we track the trends for the Number of Liens Filed and the Total Value of the Liens. This information is available to our members on our website in a searchable spreadsheet.
Business Practices Interchange (BPI) – Every meeting includes time for BPI. During this time, attendees may anonymously submit the names of General Contractors to learn more about them from the meeting attendees.
Educational Meeting Presentations – Our Meeting Presentations are centered around issues our subcontractors face in their businesses. Best Practices for Accounting in Construction, Department of Labor Regulations, and OSHA Safety Compliance are just a few of the broad and relevant topics that SAM meetings highlight for all subcontractor business owners.
Seminars – Our General Counsel, Sewall “Spike” Cutler, conducts a seminar every April to share the new language General Contractors are including in their contracts. Spike conducts another seminar every November to review the process to file a lien in Texas. It is more difficult to file a lien in Texas than it is in California!
Training Classes – SAM offers CPR/First Aid classes each year for our members, as well as other training classes that are necessary for subcontractors.
