The COVID-19 pandemic certainly threw a monkey wrench into associations’ planned in-person meetings and conferences for 2020 – cancelling most of them – but the challenges for 2021 are going to be even greater from a legal and contracting perspective.
This is because as we (hopefully) start to turn the corner on the pandemic – thanks to the arrival of vaccines – it will become harder and harder for associations to successfully execute penalty free, force majeure contract terminations (as so many were able to do in 2020).
Yet many associations remain under great pressure from their members to not hold in-person meetings during much of 2021. In short, the later in 2021 that your association’s conference is, the more difficult it will be to pull off cancellations and postponements with little or no cancellation penalties.
MASAE invites you to join a free webinar on Wednesday, January 13 at 2:00 pm ET, hosted by Association Societies Alliance (ASA), that will offer real-time, practical advice and guidance, best practices, and suggestions for dealing with the daunting challenges of dealing with your 2021 meeting contracts.
This free webinar counts for one (1) CAE credit hour.
