A signed contract is required before we can pay performers.

A Signed Contract Is Required

If you receive a contract from a speaker or performer, you must bring it to the Collis Center for Student Involvement to be reviewed and signed. Students are not authorized to sign contracts.

If the performer does not have a contract to provide, you can use the generic contract we have drafted. This document needs to be edited to reflect the specific details of the event, so please contact us for assistance. 

Cash Meal Buyouts

Some performer contracts call for a certain amount of cash to be provided for meals. This is called a cash buyout. The meal buyout is generally no more than $20 per person per meal.

To cover this, you should request a cash advance in your name. When you hand the cash to the performer, have the person sign a tour manager receipt to verify that the cash was received. We will place a tour manager receipt in the envelope with your cash advance voucher when you request a cash advance for a performer cash buyout.

You cannot use the cash advance to pay the performer fee. That can only be paid by a Dartmouth College check.
