Other Considerations

The contract states the name of the organization or group holding the meeting as well as its address, phone number and a contact name. Other important information includes conference/meeting dates, hours of usage, number of estimated attendees, meeting room set-up design, audio-visual requirements, and rental cost. The BALE coordinator will send clients a spec sheet that includes a diagram of the room set up, catering requirements and audio-visual equipment that are required for the meeting/conference. A preliminary spec sheet should be approved and returned to the BALE coordinator at least four weeks prior to the meeting date, and a final spec sheet will be approved two weeks prior to the meeting date.

Deposit/Payment

The organization conducting the meeting will provide OSC with a deposit to hold the meeting space. This deposit is 50% of the contract amount. The deposit is due at the same time the preliminary spec sheet is submitted (4 weeks prior to the meeting date). Deposits are non-refundable if the meeting is cancelled. The Rental Fee balance should be paid in full within 30 days of the event's last day.

Insurance/Indemnification

The organization conducting the meeting will agree that it shall, at its sole cost and expense, procure and maintain a policy of commercial general liability insurance in an amount not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence and $3,000,000 in the annual aggregate.

For cancellations 30 days prior to commencement date, the organization conducting the meeting will be charged 100% of the rental costs and for any expenses incurred by OSC.
