Meeting Contract Best Practices:
Maximize the Effectiveness of Your Agreements
Recorded on February 28, 2017



When it comes to meetings, a well-drafted contract can keep your association out of court. It can also provide valuable remedies if a dispute should arise.

What does it take to draft these strong, risk-reducing contracts?  For starters, you need to know the clauses you do–and don’t–want included. You need to know where you can be flexible in negotiations, and where it’s critical to stand firm and maximize the commitment from other parties.

Here’s how to get this know-how and turn it into meetings contracts that do more to manage risk, boost efficiency and protect your organization from liability.

In this 90-minute webinar, leading attorney Nathan Breen presents best practices for avoiding pitfalls that can turn ordinary meetings contracts into undue risks and liabilities for your organization. Step by step, you’ll discover how to reduce your exposure and strengthen your protections should a dispute arise.

Instantly improve your power to negotiate.  In addition to what to make sure goes into the contract, you’ll learn what to insist upon and where you may be able to bend a bit without creating potential problems for your organization down the road. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
