Have questions you always wanted to ask a construction attorney without getting a bill? This is your chance!

We’ll also be joined by Mark Bradley, CEO of LMN, who will present Building Efficiency Within Your Business — Learn Why Landscaping Companies Have Chosen LMN as the #1 Business Software in the Industry. Mark, who once owned one of the top 50 landscape companies in North America, will focus on financial literacy (profitability), best practices and key insights.

Learn how to how to hire right the first time to avoid the ugliness of workplace terminations and the expensive costs that come with high turnover.
