September 2011 General Membership Meeting
At Septemberís General Membership Meeting, 31 were in attendance to hear Steve Hilger of Hilger Hammond Attorneys at Law speak on the subject of contracts. His talk was titled ďI Didnít Sign a Contract, So Now What?Ē Hilger began his talk by giving examples of statements you may have heard or have even made yourself, statements such as:
- ďI donít need a contract; Iíve been dealing with this guy for 20 years.Ē
- ďI donít need a contract; itís such a small job.Ē
- ďIf I ask for a contract, my client will think I donít trust him.Ē
- ďIíve done lots of work with this guy on just a handshake.Ē
According to Hilger, itís not just important to get a written contract in your possession, but also to get it signed by all parties. He spoke about what can happen when you donít get the contract signed.
