What Would You Do? An Interactive Workshop on Critical Nonprofit Legal Issues
While WWYD is an acronym that’s made it into our daily language, you’ve probably never thought to apply it to legal issues in your nonprofit – but nonprofits routinely face complicated challenges. This entertaining, interactive workshop will test your knowledge of some of the most important legal and tax issues facing nonprofits today.
Laura Solomon, Esq., founder of Laura Solomon, Esq. & Associates, works exclusively with nonprofit organizations and will use actual case studies from her practice to share valuable insights and information on topics such as:
- disclosing and reporting embezzlement and other misuses of charitable funds;
- thorny issues involving charitable solicitations;
- problems with naming rights;
- challenges in honoring donor intent when investing, managing, and using restricted funds;
- unique considerations in nonprofit affiliations, mergers, and acquisitions;
- cautionary tales involving conflicts of interest;
- choices and tax implications (unrelated business income tax) of social enterprises.
Join us for this useful game of WWYD that could prevent you from hearing IJNE*
