After the initial payment, the balance of the fees and all other costs will be due and payable to Barbie Swanson on the last day of the contracted term of engagement. If you would like to reserve dates before you know the exact locations of your events, or the exact workshops your group wants to book, you can send the preliminary agreement , to reserve your spot in Barbie's schedule, and send this full contract later.
This is to confirm our verbal agreement that Barbie Swanson will present workshop(s) and/or lecture(s) for:
...
Barbie will not promote these items during the class, nor will she spend class time selling them.
...
Travel arrangementswill be made by Barbie Swanson or the travel agent of the conference / guild, with Barbie's agreement on dates of travel, routes, airline etc. (Seating on aisles is preferred.)
In order to secure the most economical air transportation, Barbie must be provided with all necessary information about exact dates and times of workshops and other events at least 90 days prior to the first scheduled event on the trip which includes your events. Please keep in mind that you may not be the first group on her itinerary, and you may be required to provide this information more than 90 days prior to your events.

...
Ground Transportation: Arrangements will be made by the guild/conference to meet Barbie Swanson at airport locations with a vehicle adequate to handle three large (70 pound/ 40 kilo) suitcases. Remember we will be lifting them in and out.
...

...
A signed copy of this letter of understanding or the Preliminary Agreement must be returned to Barbie Swanson before a firm commitment can be made.
If your group would like to reserve future dates, but has not yet booked a venue or made decisions on which workshops to schedule, a copy of the Preliminary Agreement may be used to reserve the time in Barbie's schedule.
