Thursday, 1/6/2011: Phone Conference: Practical Considerations on Nonprofit Governance

As part of the California State Bar's Cyber Institute, Lisa Runquist will present a telephone seminar discussing the impact that recent developments in the IRS and Attorney General's oversight of nonprofit organizations have had on nonprofit governance. From the description:
The IRS, as well as the Attorney General, are now actively involved in the area of nonprofit governance. As a result, it is imperative that nonprofit leaders take an active role in reviewing, restructuring if necessary, and implementing a corporate governance structure that will allow their organization to thrive in this new environment. We will discuss such issues as: What do you, as a leader need to know in order to make the correct decisions for your organization? What policies does your organization need to adopt or update? What should be included in these policies? How will each policy be implemented? Are there any issues with how your nonprofit is currently organized that might trigger an IRS audit? Will your organization`s answers to the new Form 990 impact the charitable giving to your nonprofit organization.
Although directed at California attorneys who represent nonprofit organizations (MCLE credit is available), non-attorneys and out-of-state practitioners will also find the information useful and relevant and are welcome to attend. Thursday, January 6, 2011, 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time
