Advising a nonprofit organization, whether a national organization or a local, grass-roots operation, requires more than good intentions. This information-packed seminar will highlight a number of areas crucial to attorneys who assist nonprofit organizations: organization set-up and obtaining tax-exempt status; governance; and financial oversights and controls. Participants will also gain insight into the legal ethics implicated in representing nonprofit clients, the risks involved with managing volunteers and how organizations can raise funds without raising concerns. Whether the nonprofit you are involved with is a client or a personal favorite that you may volunteer for, get the answers for often-asked questions.
