Operating the NY Not-for-Profit Organization (2011)
This program is more than a typical survey course on the law affecting not-for-profit organizations, as the speakers focus on ongoing operational and governance issues and the “best practices” the organization’s board, administration and advisors should employ during the various stages of the organization’s existence.
The program also devotes attention to current “hot topics” the counselor of not-for-profits must understand, such as “benefit corporations,” fiscal sponsorship arrangements, mergers and acquisitions in the not-for-profit area, and incorporating in Delaware rather than in New York.
The experienced faculty members share tips and provide guidance in identifying and addressing the special legal and practical areas of concern to not-for-profits and their members. Time has also been reserved in the program to discuss the latest activity and proposals by the state legislature and Congress affecting not-for-profits.
