Almost every nonprofit will hold at least one annual conference throughout the year, with many organizations having multiple conferences, meetings and trade shows. As in-house counsel know well, the contracting process for these meetings can be a laborious set of negotiations resulting in series of high-value contracts to be reviewed on a short deadline. This program will offer tips from the trade and common strategies to incorporate into your contract reviews. Relying on real-world examples, the panel will provide strategies to avoid common pitfalls in the contracting process, including topics such as mitigating potential attrition, cancellation and other damages, demystifying force majeure, and consideration of insurance issues. Before heading into your next meeting planning season, make sure you are armed with practical knowledge and know-how to adequately protect your organization and receive the most value in the contracting process.
