Program Description:
Faced with a changing financial climate, tightened budgets, and shrinking meeting attendance, many nonprofits have taken a new look at meeting contracts. This session will focus on the most common legal hazards in hotel, convention center, and other nonprofit meeting contracts, and will offer practical tips for negotiating tighter agreements with less financial risk. Among topics to be addressed will be the legal pitfalls of letters of intent, hotel cancellation and attrition, force majeure, indemnification, convention center agreements, and understanding the relationship between insurance coverage and common areas of liability.
