Tenenbaum Law Group’s Managing Partner Jeff Tenenbaum and Counsel Nisha Thakker are quoted extensively in this article in ASAE’s Associations Now about the fact that after trade and professional associations experienced costly event-cancellation penalties due to the pandemic, many are looking at their meeting contracts differently and incorporating new provisions when possible. Tenenbaum and Thakker offer numerous practical tips to associations in connection with the negotiation of their meeting contracts.
Following TLG Counsel Nisha Thakker’s October 26, 2021 presentation at the Wisconsin Society of Association Executives’ 2021 Annual Summit, Impact Association Management CEO and Founder Jodi Fisher published a blog entry about her takeaways from Nisha’s discussion of meeting contract considerations during and beyond COVID-19. “Though it’s not always the most thrilling topic, she did a great job keeping us engaged, throwing in some good humor, and giving us some really solid material,” said Fisher. “Contract clauses, supply and demand, and meeting planning have changed fairly significantly since the pandemic hit us, and as meeting professionals, we have to stay on top of these trends in order to protect our clients’ events. There were many, many takeaways, but here were a few that really stuck out to me,” said Fisher, as she went on to describe her four key takeaways.
