Attorney Bob Stein To The Rescue!

The conference schedule for October will be published in an upcoming Bulletin. But I’m not going to wait that long to remind members of a golden opportunity to have some of your legal questions answered (about contracts, negotiations, plagiarism, payments in arrears, etc.) by Bob Stein, an experienced literary attorney from New York. In addition to taking part in a panel or two and conducting his own two-hour legal workshop, Bob has generously offered to be available to address your concerns in a series of mini Q&A sessions.

These will be conducted Thursday, October 24 – Saturday, October 26 for a total of six sessions, with a limit of six NINC members per session.

You must be registered for the conference in order to submit your bid to be selected for one of the sessions. Members may only attend one session, to ensure that everyone who is interested has an equal chance of gaining a spot.

Selection is first come, first served. Members may begin emailing me their requests for one of the 36 spaces ( after midnight of August 31. Those selected by this process will be notified by September 15, 2013. The exact time of each session has not yet been confirmed, but all members chosen are guaranteed attendance in one of six sessions.
