A Note from Michael

Your Chamber continues to grow both in membership and in the services we offer you. New programs such as the Rowlett Nonprofit Alliance are starting this month and Laura continues to bring in outstanding lunch-n-learn and luncheon speakers. Stay tuned for an announcement coming soon about a women's alliance and make sure you look for the announcement about the June and July lunches!

One last note - we need committee members! We have SEVEN committees and all of them need more participation. They don't take a lot of time but are vital to what the Chamber does for you. Please contact me if you're interested in helping!

Gotcha! What You Need to Know Before You Sign That Contract

Most people seek out a lawyer when they are faced with or expect have a legal matter, but to Dallas business attorney Chris McNeill, the best time to hire an attorney is before you need one.
This is especially true when you're about to sign any kind of legal document, including a sale or service contract, employment agreement, office or warehouse lease, bill of sale, and so on. But if you're like most people, chances are you haven't read the paperwork thoroughly or if you have, you don't understand exactly the significant of all of the contract provisions.
In his talk, "Gotcha! What You Need to Know Before You Sign That Contract," Chris will share with you:
  • How a liability waiver can save them from litigation
  • Why a confidentiality clause is essential to securing their businesses' futures
  • What they can do if their contracts are violated
