    Dear Association Executives – As the ongoing pandemic continues to challenge our ability to hold successful association meetings and conferences, please plan to join us for a special Association Executives meeting on Tuesday, September 14 at 2:00 pm ET for a discussion on "Meeting Contract Considerations During and Beyond COVID-19" with Jeff Tenenbaum and Nisha Thakker of the Tenenbaum Law Group.

    Please encourage your meeting planners to join this meeting.

    We will discuss pandemic-related legal issues focused on contract cancellations and attrition and liabilities for in-person meetings, as well as addressing contract provisions to protect associations in connection with future events.

    The discussion will include:

    • Room block reviews and timelines,
    • Attrition for room blocks and food and beverage,
    • Deposit amounts and deposit schedules,
    • Cancellation fees,
    • Rebook and resell clauses,
    • Force majeure provisions, and
    • Bankruptcy and change of brand/management.

    We also want to hear from you on your challenges and successes and have you share these others who may be facing similar situations. 

    We look forward to your joining us.

    Stay well – Jeannie

    PS - On September 21st at 2:00 pm, we will have our regular monthly Association Executives meeting.
