On Monday, February 26th, Elizabeth Pappy, Esq. hosted a Bay Area SMACNA Lunch and Learn on “Mechanic’s Lien Laws."

Members learned how mechanic’s liens are powerful tools to ensure payment by owners and general contractors. Timing rules can be difficult to navigate and implement as businesses go about daily business because of disputes over what constitutes substantial completion and more often, knowing when substantial completion has taken place because a company has been off the job for weeks or months before the project achieves substantial completion.

Guests got answers to questions and a general overview of the mechanic’s lien procedures to maximize their chances of their companies getting paid.

Nearly 200 Bay Area SMACNA members and guests watched the San Jose Sharks host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, January 20th at the SAP Center. Guests were welcomed with a delicious pre-game dinner of burgers, hotdogs, bacon mac n’ cheese and more.

Both teams scored in the first period to start the game off with a bang. Despite many shots on goal, the defenses quickly locked down any scoring opportunities until Sharks Center Tomas Hertl found the back of the net in the third period to give the Sharks their winning goal of the game. Thank you to the Sharks organization and all Bay Area chapter members and guests who attended.
