Washington, D.C. –ConsensusDocs, a coalition of 40 design and construction industry associations, announced today its recently elected 2017 Contract Content Advisory Council leadership (aka Drafting Council).  Joanne S. Brooks, Esq., Vice President and Counsel for The Surety and Fidelity Association of America (SFAA), was elected as Chair. She represents SFAA on the Drafting Council. Robert P. Majerus, Esq., Vice President and General Counsel at Hensel Phelps Construction Co., Inc. was elected as Vice Chair. Mr. Majerus represents AGC on the Drafting Council.

“I am honored to have been elected as Chair of the ConsensusDocs coalition,” states Ms. Brooks. “The SFAA’s participation in this coalition is a natural extension of our mission, as surety bonds protect both the design and construction industries. I look forward to advancing industry efforts to improve fair contract terms and address today’s most pressing issues through this unique coalition effort.”

Each and every one of the participating organizations of ConsensusDocs possesses an equal vote in approving proposed industry standard contract documents. The Chair and Vice Chair help facilitate each organization’s voice to be heard in creating fair documents that benefit the A/E/C industry as whole rather than a segment of the industry.

ConsensusDocs are the only contracts written by 40 leading design and construction industry organizations. For more information, please visit www.ConsensusDocs.org, call 866-925-Docs (3627) or email support@ConsensusDocs.org.
