Lets Get Down To Business-

Payment Terms, Ownership of Media, Disputes. What do all of these things have in common? Topics that should be covered in our contracts as we are actively practicing our craft in the marketplace.

I know these are not the reasons we went into business, however if we do take them serious and cover our backsides they could be the reason we loose our business!

January’s Meetup will focus on the business side of things as our Keynote Speaker Mr. Collin Moriarty dives deep into the important components in a production contract. Collin will talk about; Elements of a Contract – Offer, Acceptance, Consideration, Proving a Contract – Verbal, Written, Parol Evidence, and Merger, Advantages of a Contract – Quasi-contract theories, forum selection, choice of law, collection costs, etc, Causes of Contract Breaches – Screwing up, Lack of Understanding, Self-Interest, Outside Problems

Mr. Moriarty is a trial attorney who has litigated business disputes, federal employment discrimination lawsuits, construction and fabrication defect claims, a telecommunications law dispute, and other lawsuits involving complex issues and remedies over the past 10 years. He also has represented business clients in commercial arbitration proceedings in the Denver metro area.

It’s that time again. Tax Time!

Our Micro Presenter will be our new CoPVA Sponsor Mr. Dale Smith. Dale will be sharing a few tax tips with us to help ease the pain through tax season this year. Dale is a Accountant and Business Consultant focused on helping businesses plan and manage finances as well as processing annual tax filings. Please note that Dale is also offing $100 off of any embers 2017 filing as well as a review of your 2016 tax returns to see if they are substantially correct, and will review their business entity set up documents to see if they are complete – both for no additional charge for these reviews. This is a great opportunity and value. Please reach out to Dale if you have any questions or would like to set up a consultation with him at 303-337-8195 or by visiting his web site at On another note we will be discussing some association changes as well as getting our annual Non-profit CoPVA community video project started.

Looking forward to connecting with everyone in the new year. Best wishes and happy holidays to everyone.
