Nonprofit Law 101: Foundational Basics

Tuesday May. 14, 2019
9 a.m.-11 a.m.
Pre-registration at 8:30 a.m.

In order to avoid diverting precious time and resources away from their mission, nonprofit organizations need to have a basic understanding of the complex web of overlapping state and federal regulations by which they are governed.

This presentation will give nonprofit leaders a high-level overview of the most common legal pitfalls and questions our 150+ local nonprofit clients face, briefly covering the topics of governance, compliance, employment, and intellectual property.

At the conclusion of this seminar participants will come away with:

  • A checklist to help your 501(c)(3) organization issue-spot potential areas of legal liability;
  • A basic understanding of critical issues that will make your organization more effective and avoid preventable legal entanglements; and
  • Practical tips for staying compliant with federal and state rules and regulations and avoiding costly governmental investigations or private litigation.
