Meeting planners know that certain performance clauses, while common, can be tricky to negotiate. They also can result in some fiscally unpleasant surprises down the road.

Tyra Hilliard, PhD, JD, CMP, a speaker, professor, and writer who specializes in law, liability, crisis and emergency preparedness in the meetings and hospitality industry, will tackle the Big Three: attrition, cancellation, and force majeure. She’ll explore why the typical wording for these clauses can be problematic, and some modifications planners can implement. Earn one-half clock hour toward your Certified Meeting Professional designation while you learn how a small change in wording can reap big benefits in protecting your organization and your event.

During this half-hour webinar: you'll:

•Learn how to evaluate attrition clauses for potential challenges
•Discover how to effectively ask for something you may not be legally entitled to by applying the principle of mitigation to performance clauses
•Find ways to modify force majeure clauses that could prove beneficial should an event-cancelling situation arise
