BBQ Mixer, Swap Meet & Business Advice - July 13, 2011

 BBQ Mixer, Swap Meet & Business Advice - July 13, 2011

MCAI (Media Communications Association) and PVN (Professional Videographers Network) are hosting a media mixer-summer BBQ and AV swap meet on Wed July 13th. Besides home-cooked burgers and brats with all the fixins, you’ll get important business advice from attorney Bill Larson explaining how “Good Contracts Protect Good Relationships.”

An experienced business counselor, Larson will share some of the most important items you need to have in your contracts and deal memos. In an industry where small companies and individual practitioners sometimes create their own written agreements by copying, cutting & pasting from other’s, Larson offers important advice and the opportunity to get specific answers to your legal business questions.

While you’re networking with other professionals over a juicy burger you’ll peruse a variety of gently used audio & video equipment—and perhaps find just what you need. Or you’ll collect a little cash for some AV stuff that you haven’t used for a while. There’s no charge to sell or display your stuff for the swap meet (unless you need to rent an actual table) but to sell anything you do have to register in advance with PVN’s John Lister by email at [masked]

The event is $15 at the door for food and the program-- $12 if you prepay online at
…and if you are a member of MCAI or PVN your entrance and food are FREE!

As always, bring a friend and plenty of business cards—and for this even t, don’t forget a little cash for that piece AV equipment you just can’t resist!

TO DISPLAY AT THE SWAP MEET you must register with John Lister by email at: [masked]

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
