The City of Airdrie will host a half-day workshop on surety, on Thursday, June 9 at 9:00 a.m.
The Workshop content will be about what is surety? When would it be helpful? How can I use it for the best results? What are the recent trends?
All of these questions and more will be answered by the Surety Association of Canada in a new series of workshops exploring surety tools, both paper and electronic. The workshops will include a review of surety instruments used in the procurement and contract management process, an outline of the differences between surety instruments and alternatives forms of security, i.e. contract default insurance and letters of credit and much more.
