Even Creatives Must Be Legal

09/06/2012 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Attorney Jon Lee Andersen will cover two vital areas for those involved in the creative fields: Rules to Live By and Covering Your Bases Contractually. Designed to help you avoid personal courtroom drama (much less expensive and more exciting on TV), the presentation will describe certain rules to follow in preparing creative works for others. This is especially important when there is an element of promotion involved in the works.

And since the faintest ink beats the strongest memory, Jon will discuss the “Must Have,” “Should Have” and maybe “Nice-to-Have” elements of the freelance-client agreement. He will also answer your questions.

Since you can tell, Jon has a great sense of humor, he asks you to think of the presentation this way:

Mom sprung for good schools
To avoid raising fools
So come to the show
Sit near the front row
And learn all the critical rules

So, join us on Thursday, September 6th, for an educational (and entertaining) evening from one of Atlanta’s top advertising attorneys!

Free for members. Guests pay $15 – Cash or check only. Walk-ins welcome! Free refreshments – as always!

Blue jeans rule. Business attire is okay if you just came from a big meeting with a corporate client. But otherwise, relax.


6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
