BUSINESS EAGLE BENEFITS

EAGLE BUSINESSES

The Florida Justice Association (FJA) is the state’s leading civil justice advocate. With just over 3,000 members, FJA is dedicated to protecting, defending, and strengthening the state’s civil justice system. FJA and its members are committed to safeguarding the Constitutional rights of Florida’s hard-working people and help them stand up to big corporations and hold them accountable in court. FJA welcomes the many EAGLE businesses that have chosen to step forward and stand beside us and other consumer advocates as we strive to shield Florida consumers from dangerous special-interest legislation. EAGLE business leaders understand the important role the courts play in protecting the free market from the manipulation of bad actors. EAGLE business leaders have a deep understanding that profits are protected only when products are safe, and protecting Florida consumers is good business.

CORPORATE LEADERSHIP EAGLE businesses’ financial contributions support the Florida Justice Association’s continuing legislative, political, and public educational efforts to preserve consumers’ rights and protect people’s Constitutionally guaranteed access to Florida’s civil justice system. Among the most important contributions made by our EAGLE businesses are the steadfast examples of enduring moral courage and responsible corporate leadership they demonstrate to the rest of Florida’s business community. EAGLE businesses set the highest standard for consumer support, leading the way to promote outstanding corporate citizenship, responsibility, and accountability.

RECOGNIZING EAGLE BUSINESSES EAGLE businesses are recognized in FJA publications and the FJA website, so members across the state know exactly which businesses have joined FJA in our fight to preserve the civil justice system.

CLE EXHIBITING RULES & REGULATIONS 1. CONTRACT

The following rules and regulations become binding upon acceptance of this contract between the applicant and its employees and the Florida Justice Association® (FJA™). The FJA does not guarantee attendance counts or your success at meetings. FJA offers exhibiting at its meetings to offer companies exposure to FJA members. FJA™ staff will do their best to offer maximum exposure to attending companies.

2. SPACE ASSIGNMENT

Business Friends of EAGLE are given the first opportunity to exhibit by level of EAGLE contribution, as long as their agreements are received by a specified deadline to be determined for each exhibit. After that time exhibit assignments are made in good faith on a first-come, first-serve basis in the order of receipt of the exhibit agreement and payment (first company confirmed is placed first, second company confirmed placed second and so on). Once exhibits are confirmed, an approximate floor plan is sent with a request for four preferred selections of space. Our Business Friends of EAGLE also receive priority on exhibit booth selections by level of EAGLE contribution, after which other exhibitors will receive booth selections based on the first-come, first-serve order their agreement was received. The FJA™ will take into consideration competitors during placement. In the event all spaces are not sold, FJA may assign other exhibits in these places. The earlier your agreement with payment is received the more likely you are to receive one of your selected spaces. Space will not be reserved until payment is received in full.

3. EXHIBIT SPACE DESCRIPTION

All spaces include a 6 foot draped table and 2 chairs. Additional exhibit spaces will be provided at an extra charge. Electrical, easels, internet access and other services are an additional charge. Name badges for the representative(s) listed will be provided. No walls, partitions, signs, easels or other obstructions may be erected in locations that interfere with the general view “down the aisle,” or with other exhibit flow.

4. USE OF BOOTHS

Exhibitors shall reflect their company’s highest standards of professionalism while maintaining the exhibit during open hours. Exhibitor misconduct in any way towards FJA members or other exhibitors will result in immediate eviction. Pulling clients away from other exhibitors or hassling association members will not be tolerated. No photographing or videotaping of other exhibits is acceptable. No exhibitor shall assign or share the booth without the permission of the FJA™ staff. If food or beverages are served in your exhibit space, it must be ordered through the hotel’s room service or catering department. Food products from outside vendors will not be permitted in the Exhibit Hall as it is in violation of the contract between the hotel and the Florida Justice Association.

5. ELIGIBLE EXHIBITS

The FJA™ reserves the right to determine the eligibility of any company or product for inclusion in the Exhibit Hall and reserves the right to reject, evict or prohibit any exhibit or representative(s) with or without giving cause.

6. NON SPONSORS PROHIBITED

Only registered exhibiting companies and their representative(s) along with conference attendees and staff are allowed to stay in the Exhibit Hall during open hours. Any company and/or representative(s) not exhibiting will not be allowed to stay in the Exhibit Hall without paying the exhibiting fee. Potential exhibitors or guests may receive guest passes by calling the FJA™ at (850) 224-9403 at least 24 hours in advance of the seminar.

7. LIABILITY AND INSURANCE

The hotel management and the FJA™ are under no circumstances responsible for loss of exhibitor’s property by theft or fire or other causes. FJA™ will request that the exhibit area be locked during the evening hours if possible. This is not applicable if exhibit areas are set in a foyer area. Exhibitors are responsible for their own acts and those of their employees and agents. Applicant agrees to hold harmless and indemnify the Florida Justice Association in regard to any and all liability to third parties resulting from any negligence, misconduct or other activity of applicant or its employees or agents.

8. DAMAGE TO PROPERTY

Exhibitors are liable for any damage caused to the building, floor, walls, columns, hotel rental equipment or other exhibitor’s property.

9. CANCELLATIONS

If a company registers to exhibit at a seminar and cancels before the deadline for exhibit registrations, one fourth of the exhibit registration fee will be retained with the remainder refunded. If the company cancels after the deadline for exhibit registration, one half of the exhibit fee will be retained and one half will be refunded. If a company cancels as late as three weeks prior to the seminar, there will be no refund of exhibit fees at hotel.
