The four assets that all non-profit organizations have are people, property, income and goodwill.  Risk management is about protecting these assets.  Live events, such as conferences, galas and board meetings, expose these organizational assets to significant risk – starting with the venue contract.  Join Heather and a panel of your CSAE colleagues for an interactive discussion about risk management in venue contracts….ie., cancellation, attrition, termination.  Our time together will share real-life stories, as well as uncover 3 critical areas of risk in venue contracts and how to address them, and a number of best practices for negotiating venue contracts.  Risk management is a process that should be integrated into all aspects of your organization’s management – including negotiating venue contracts!
