GKG Law’s Trade & Professional Associations team will be conducting an interactive Workshop in conjunction with UST Education. The 1.5 hour workshop (CAE and CPE credit awarded to attendees), Navigating Key Legal Issues of Hybrid & In-Person Events Post-COVID, will be led by practice group leader Rich Bar

If your association is cautiously approaching 2021 as the year for rebuilding your conferences and events, you’ll need to have strong planning and strategy in place not to mention a high level of flexibility in the lingering pandemic “normal.” This 1.5 hour workshop is designed to quickly get you up to speed on how to plan for future events while making you aware of key legal considerations to keep your organization protected. 

This workshop is designed to be a highly interactive open forum with your peers and will be led by GKG Law’s seasoned attorneys, who have years of first-hand experience partnering with associations on their events. A survey will be distributed prior to the workshop to ensure that the most pressing issues and concerns are discussed during these sessions. 

Topic:  Navigating In-Person Events in a Pandemic-Disrupted World
This will be an open forum discussion and Q&A around negotiation strategies, useful contract language, and risk mitigation.

  • Identify pitfalls and risks involved with in-person events
  • Clarify essential contract language
  • Mitigate risk exposure
  • Gain big picture knowledge for planning safe and profitable events
