I am in the real estate industry and 7-8 like minded folk
Hi,I am in the real estate industry and 7-8 like minded folk have setup a group ; "Aussie Real Estate Mafia". We are supposed to exchange ideas and discuss potential deals internally and generally help each other. We've agreed to sign an NDA to protect each other when we talk openly and show deals to other members.The thing is the NDA appears to me to be invalid in that one of the parties to each NDA is "the member" (ie me) and the other party is "the organiser" who is listed as the name of our group "Aussie Real Estate Mafia. The "organiser" is neither a legal person nor a legal entity of any kind so as I understand it, "it" can't enter into a contract making this whole NDA invalid. Perhaps i am wrong on this point? That's why i'm here, could you please clarify?I'm also confused by statements that refer to requiring "express written consent from the organiser" - who is this and does this even make logical sense?See start of NDA below and some examples from the doc....Aussie Real Estate Mafia Membership Agreement Member Initials: _____ This agreement is made by and between (member name: _______________________________________, herein referred to as Member, and Aussie Real Estate Mafia herein referred to as Organizer.Purpose of Agreement The purpose of this agreement is to provide for the terms and conditions applicable to membership in the Aussie Real Estate Mafia that may be established and facilitated by Organizer. In exchange for membership in Organizer's group, meetings, forums, events and any other such group activities or communications that may occur, and in consideration of the mutual covenants below, Member and Organizer agree to the following: Definitions As used in this agreement, the following terms have the following meanings: •Co-Members means all other persons who are members of Organizer's Aussie Real Estate Mafia or in attendance as a guest. •Aussie Real Estate Mafia means the private club established and facilitated by Organizer to assist, educate and foster cooperation between members regarding real estate investing projects and activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, investments made inside the United States. •Facilitators means the individual or individuals which moderate or presides over Aussie Real Estate Mafia meetings.------Example clauses referring to "organiser" requiring consent-----_____ Member agrees not to audio, video or otherwise record or transmit the presentations and conversations that occur at any Aussie Real Estate Mafia meeting without the prior express written consent of Organizer._____ Member agrees to make every good faith effort to protect the privacy and financial well being of Organizer, Facilitators and Co-Members by not disclosing Confidential Information to any party or business, public or private, outside of the Aussie Real Estate Mafia, without the express written consent of all affected parties, including the Organizer.
