Running a nonprofit is challenging and legal questions come up all the time. With so many issues to juggle every day, it’s hard to find time to read up on best practices, keep abreast of changes in laws, and focus on vague risks that you may not even be able to articulate. This workshop will update you on issues surrounding compliance and filing requirements, changes in employment law, best practices in good corporate governance, and keeping current with internet and website policies.
