Weekly Community Conversations - Government Contracts: Negotiating Fair Compensation

When:  Dec 18, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PT)
Associated with  Animal Welfare Professionals

Call Topic: Government Contracts: Negotiating Fair Compensation

Animal shelters continue to expand services without expanding compensation from their contracting local governments. We will discuss varying contractual models (flat rate, per animal, per capita) and tactics to ensure you get the financial support from your government that mirrors the dynamic work you do in the community. Legal issues covered include threshold for qualified immunity in certain states, open records/meetings acts, and educating local attorneys on shelter requirements.

Guest Speakers:

  • Kate Meghji, COO of Humane Rescue Alliance
  • Katie Barnett, Founder of Student Animal Legal Defense Fund and Animal Cruelty Prosecution Clinic
