All Day NCCP9030 - The Future of Blueprint Reading (Multi-Day Event)
The word "blueprint" makes us think of white line drawings on a deep blue background showing beautiful old buildings, or ships, or historic city plans. This introductory course visits the development of blueprints within the construction industry, and shows the student what to expect in a contemporary construction drawing set, and how to understand scale and symbols in drawings. There is hands-on experience with drawing simple scaled drawings. The later lessons in this course review the place of CADD and more advanced 3-D and intelligent building modeling as "blueprints" morph in the world of e-technology.

12:00 PM - 2:30 PM American Whistleblower Tour
About the Program

Our panel features those who summoned the courage to speak out when witnessing wrongdoing.  We will be joined by one of the most famous whistleblowers of our time, Enron’s Sherron Watkins and Jon Oberg, whose actions helped save billions of taxpayer dollars.  Also featured are experts in supporting whistleblowers and making sure their disclosures, and the risks they take, make a difference.


FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
with pre-registration.

This event is the first stop in the Government Accountability Project’s 2014-2015 annual American Whistleblower Tour, which seeks to educate the public - particularly the future workforce - about the important role whistleblowers play in promoting government and corporate accountability. GAP's American Whistleblower Tour, by presenting the first-hand stories of historic whistleblowers who disclosed corporate fraud, will teach attendees:
  • what whistleblowing is – and isn't

  • the difficult challenges whistleblowers face when deciding to disclose wrongdoing

  • why whistleblowers must be honored and protected to maintain an effective democratic capitalistic society

  • how the current regulatory landscape both fosters and hinders whistleblower disclosures

About the Speakers

Featuring...

Jon Oberg, while working at the Department of Education as a researcher in 2003, discovered illegal payments to student loan lenders of federal tax dollars that department officials instructed him not to investigate further. On his own time, he researched the payments and reported them to Congress, which in 2004 ended the payments prospectively, saving billions of dollars. In 2007, Oberg sued the recipients under the False Claims Act. Three years later, the Department of Justice announced it had settled four of the cases for over $57 million.

Sherron Watkins, the former Vice President of Enron Corporation who alerted then-CEO Ken Lay in August 2001 to accounting irregularities within the company, warning him that Enron ‘might implode in a wave of accounting scandals.’  She has testified before Congressional Committees from the House and Senate investigating Enron’s demise.  Ms. Watkins has been lauded in the press for her courageous actions.  TIME magazine named Sherron, along with two others, Coleen Rowley of the FBI and Cynthia Cooper of WorldCom, as their 2002 Persons of the Year, for being “people who did right just by doing their jobs rightly.”  TIME magazine concluded that, “Democratic capitalism requires that people trust in the integrity of public and private institutions alike. As whistle-blowers, these three became fail-safe systems that did not fail. For believing—really believing—that the truth is one thing that must not be moved off the books, and for stepping in to make sure that it wasn't, they have been chosen by TIME as its Persons of the Year for 2002.”

With special guests...

Jennifer M. Pacella is an Assistant Professor of Law at Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business.

Jordan A. Thomas is an American attorney, and writer, speaker and media commentator on securities enforcement, corporate ethics, and whistleblower issues.
