Associations and nonprofits use contracts in every aspect of their operation. Unfortunately, not all those are “good” contracts. The fact is, it’s all-too easy to end up drafting and negotiating a contract that puts your organization at a disadvantage. Confusing terms might accidently give away your copyright and content rights and open up chances for your association to unknowingly violate contract terms. During contract negotiations, you might not realize your power to request minor changes that could result in major cost savings or service improvements. Plus, you may not know the best ways to enforce your contractual rights. Bottom line: entering into bad contracts can cost you an enormous amount of time and money. That’s why making sure your association gets good contracts can make such a difference. Here’s where to start.
