The NYC Lobbying Bureau is hosting an information session specifically for architects and engineers. The 06.09.16 session will focus on the amnesty program, which is in effect until 06.30.16, and will provide guidance to architects and engineers to determine if they should apply for amnesty.

Please consider attending or having your counsel attend one of the City Clerk’s trainings and carefully examine the NYC Lobbying Law and Rules to determine whether you engage in reportable lobbying. If you work for private clients that require you to participate in discretionary applications, such as ULURP, we suggest you consult with your counsel.

The session is free and will be held at the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings, 100 Church Street, Hearing Room A – 12th Floor, New York, NY.
