In October of 2009, Andrew Goldsmith (Pres.) attended the Dispute Resolution Board Foundation’s Conference in Houston Texas. Andrew took advantage of the training offered at this conference and found the quality of the
courses to be outstanding. The conference was well attended. The quality of its membership is of the
highest quality. Andrew discovered that for the most part the dispute board members had a great since of humor. This is something that must be an element in their success in resolving disputes, or maybe just keeping one’s sanity. The Conference contained valuable information that help all the members in their work as DRB members. Many members from outside of the US were also present. All in all, it was apparent that the DB process is spreading like a wild fire throughout the construction industry because of the success that it has had in significantly reducing the number of disputes throughout the industries. The DRB Foundations new focus is "vertical construction" an area that could greatly benefit from the DRB process. The challenge is to get this information in the hands of the project owner and Contract specifier. Andrew is honored to be one of its members and is excited to help promote the DRB process in Texas, his home state.
