APA's Office of General Counsel and Office of Financial Services answer questions and provide tips for Division leaders

Outside Vendors

Considering an outside Association Management Company?  Hiring a Conference/Meeting Planner?  Fees can add up, scope of work can creep, expectations might not be met (but hopefully exceeded), seemingly clear statements in the statement of work get muddled.  These relationships can be tricky and tend to be fraught with performance and legal issues unless the contract has been vetted and the terms have been negotiated in full prior to the implementation of the services.  If you are contemplating going in this direction, contact the Office Of General Counsel to discuss options and issues that should be considered as well as assistance in reviewing, drafting and negotiating your contract.
