A seminar about legal issues that your organization is likely to encounter when supporting nonprofit organizations
7:30 a.m. - Registration, Networking & Continental Breakfast
8:00-9:30 a.m. - Seminar Program
Godfrey & Kahn knows how involved its clients are in the community—either by encouraging employees to give their energy and skills as directors or volunteers, or by providing essential financial support to community organizations. We also know that our clients want to be smart and responsible about their support. And, individual volunteers need to understand their legal responsibilities as directors and know how to avoid the pitfalls that could turn a positive experience into a liability.
In appreciation and recognition of these roles, we invite you to a presentation to help you better understand legal issues that could affect you or your business, including:
- Directors and volunteers for nonprofit organizations: The obligations of, and protections for, directors or volunteers, including a special presentation about Directors & Officers Liability Insurance.
- Lobbying and political involvement: The limitations on tax exempt organizations under the Internal Revenue Code and developments in the regulation of nonprofit activities.
- Donations to nonprofit causes: A review of different types of nonprofit organizations and the advantages and limitations of each.
Presenters: Melissa Auchard Scholz, Rea Holmes, and Mike Wittenwyler of Godfrey & Kahn and
