Advising Nonprofit Organizations
Friday, June 16, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Oregon Convention Center, Portland
6 general CLE credits and .5 ethics credit

Have you ever been asked by a nonprofit group to: "just look over" an application for nonprofit status; help rewrite the group’s bylaws; join the group’s governing board? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions, this seminar will provide a wealth of information to assist you. With myriad nonprofit organizations and projects asking for volunteers and professional help, the answers need to come from the experts. Profit from our expert practitioners, who will share their experience and practical knowledge about tax-exempt status, governance, the Oregon Attorney General’s Office, Internet issues, political activity and lobbying and the ethics of working or volunteering with a nonprofit. Learn today’s hot topic for nonprofits and what happens when nonprofits become involved with business activities, either intentionally or unintentionally. This seminar will be of interest to anyone who has a nonprofit organization as a client, sits on a nonprofit board or performs pro bono work for a nonprofit.
