ALL ABOUT APCA COOPERATIVE BUYING BE SURE TO ATTEND THE ADVISOR/CO-OP ORIENTATION

FRIDAY, MARCH 15 | 10: 00 AM | CRYSTAL A APCA Cooperative Buying is a program that gives the schools attending APCA conferences the ability to merge their buying power, offering associates a block of engagement dates in a specified time period in exchange for a lower price and sharing of travel costs with other schools. The time periods that schools can agree to set-up a block are: Isolated - A single date, usually not including travel and lodging. 2 of 3 days, 3 of 5 days, and 5 of 7 days # of shows within a # of day(s) time period, travel and lodging are often shared evenly by the schools booking the attraction. A typical cooperative pricing schedule in the conference program might be:

John Doe: Comedian Represented by ABC Agency: Isolated $1200 2 of 3 $1100 3 of 5 $1050 5 of 7 $950 (Plus travel & lodging, shared travel & lodging in blocks)

Travel and lodging costs may often be agreed to onsite by filling out a Cooperative Buying form and detailing the arrangements in the co-op travel rider section. Any arrangements detailed in the travel rider section of a co-op form and initialed by both parties will overide any other prices or agreements in the conference program or other verbal or written arrangements made before the signing of the form and may not be changed without the consent of both parties. The sample Cooperative Buying form on the following page is the form your school can use to lock in a price on a performing artist at an APCA Programming Conference. When a school is interested in an artist from the conference showcases, the cooperative buyer may sign a co-op form, indicating their school’s interest in hosting the attraction during their schedule. The forms are then collected at the APCA Cooperative Buying booth in the exhibit hall and discussed with other interested schools in the Cooperative Buying sessions. These sessions are held to give your school the opportunity to combine your buying power with other schools in your geographical area to reduce talent and travel prices. For more information on the cooperative buying process, attend the APCA conference co-op buying educational session or contact Dave Leenhouts. Note: APCA Cooperative Buying Rules are displayed on the reverse of cooperative forms for handy reference at APCA conferences. APCA rules are also listed in the conference program and are subject to change. Any questions on APCA cooperative buying may be forwarded to the National Office at (865) 429-9123. Additional Co-op Discounts! Onsite Purchasing Discounts Participating associates offer a 10% discount on any published price (isolated or block) to schools willing to book onsite by using either a “request contract (RC)” or “commitment to block (CB)” form. This discount is in addition to any other block discounts available. Look for a sign in the associate members’ booths indicating their participation in the onsite discount program. FTE Cards Some APCA associates have joined in a program where participating member schools utilize an “FTE” (full time enrollment) discount card. Based on the full-time enrollment status of the campus, a school may receive between 3% to 7% off the listed price of a participating artist or other attraction. This discount is in addition to any other onsite discount or block price discount, but the artist or attraction must be booked onsite using either a “request contract (RC)” or “commitment to block (CB)” form. The breakdown of the school FTE discount is as follows: Below 3,000 FTE 7% 5,000 - 3,000 FTE 5% 9,900 - 5,000 FTE 3% This program is completely voluntary. Schools requesting discount must show FTE Card issued by APCA National Office to participating associates upon request in order to receive discount. Look for a sign in the associate members’ booth indicating their participation in the FTE discount program. The onsite and FTE status of an artist will also be noted in their conference bio! 8


CO-OP BUYING FORMS AND TYPES OF INTEREST Attraction Interest (AI) - This option does not commit either party to a binding contract, it only retains the option for the purchaser to purchase at the published APCA™ conference program price for up to 21 days after the conference. When an attraction interest is indicated on a submitted and signed cooperative buying form, the school has indicated that it is strongly interested in booking the attraction. If the interested school wishes to book an attraction at isolated convention price structures or join a block, the attractions Representative Vmust be notified within 21 calendar days. All requested additions to a formed block are subject to reasonable travel and time constraints as determined by the conference cooperative buying coordinator, with final approval resting with the APCA™. Commitment to Block (CB) - When a commitment to block form is turned in to the cooperative buying center in the exhibit hall, the school has expressed their interest to enter into a contract if a block of as many as two schools are interested in the act on the specific date/s they have requested. If the block forms within 21 calendar days, the schools agreeing to the block must contract at the block price listed for that num- ber plus any travel and lodging, lights, sound, etc. listed for the attraction in the APCA™ conference program or agreed to by cooperative buying form rider. Block prices are only available to buyers who have finalized a contract for the block pricing. Request Contract (RC) - Buyer has agreed to purchase this attraction on site

at the convention and bound to the terms of the APCA™ contract signed by both parties. Both parties agree to honor all APCA™ co- operative buying process guidelines and procedures as set forth in the APCA™ conference program. Associate artists and agencies are responsible for contacting the buyer for a final contract provided by associate member or buyer to finalize the date.

Previously Contracted (PC) – The act is previously contracted by another venue. Though blocks may form around this date and those dates are subject to the listed pricing structures in the APCA™ program, the original contract will not be altered without agreement from both school and attraction representative involved. Prior contracted dates must be submitted by the Associate prior to the conference. This information will be incorporated into the cooperative buying system to inform buyers of dates that are unavailable or dates that can be blocked around. Make sure that PC’s are submitted in the proper format to make them compatible with the cooperative buying system. The Associate Coordinator will send out a template of the format.

HOW TO FEEL EMPOWERED WHEN YOU’RE FEELING OVERWHELMED WILD ROSE B David Schaub | David Schaub Speaking DavidSchaubSpeaking@Gmail.com | 716.512.0184 Have you ever been afraid to make a decision? I know I have. We are all faced with big decisions in our college career and adult life. Sometimes we let what we can’t do interfere with what we can do. We shouldn’t make decisions based off fear. I teach students how to make decisions while feeling peace and freedom at the same time. There is more to life than just striving and trying to survive. We can thrive during the chaos of life. We can make good decisions while finding hope in the uncertainty that can follow with making decisions. What if it doesn’t work out? What happens if I made the wrong decision? Will people be disappointed in me or my decision? Great questions that are hard to answer. They are, however, ones we need to take head-on if we are going to live a life uncommon now and live a fruitful life. While there aren’t always perfect answers to hard questions, there can always be freedom despite circumstances.
