Albany, N.Y. (September 15, 2020) – Andrew D. Mendelson, FAIA, senior vice president, chief risk management officer at Berkley Alliance Managers, a Berkley Company, will participate in the panel discussion, “Weathering the Storm: Evolving Legal Standards in the Era of Climate Change”, held during the 2020 CLM Virtual Construction Conference on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:00 a.m. CDT.

“Climate change threatens the integrity of everything from building envelopes, roads and bridges to communications and utility infrastructures,” says Mendelson. “As a result, codes, standards and regulations are continually evolving to protect against the ever-increasing frequency of severe storms and their potentially disastrous effects.
