Faegre Baker Daniels partner Brian Clifford authored the following article for the Control System Integrators Association in March 2016.
As announced in last month’s newsletter, all CSIA members, both certified and non-certified, are being automatically enrolled during the month of April in a new program we are calling the CSIA Legal Plan. The object of the plan is nothing less than ensuring that all CSIA members have access to quality legal advice from lawyers who understand their industry.
Being enrolled in the plan carries an immediate benefit. All participants in the CSIA Legal Plan are entitled to have their standard company contract/terms and conditions reviewed and updated in English either free of charge or at a significant discount:
- There is no charge to Certified CSIA members and a $250 fee charged to non-certified CSIA members for the updating of terms and conditions consistent with laws in the United States, Canada, the U.K. or China.
- There is a $750 fee for CSIA members of all types to update terms and conditions that are consistent with the laws of other jurisdictions.
A 14-day turnaround is guaranteed for this work.
There are many other benefits as well, and these will be presented in more detail during one of the "unconference" sessions at the upcoming Executive Conference in Puerto Rico.
