CLE Accredited Webinar: The Nonprofit Revitalization Act
Date: Wednesday, October 1, 2014
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Staff: Linda S. Manley, Legal Director, Lawyers Alliance for New York
Has it been more than nine months since your nonprofit client reviewed its bylaws? Are you currently a member of a nonprofit board? Are you a Lawyers Alliance pro bono attorney working on a governance matter? Would you like to learn more about how the revised Not-for-Profit Corporation Law impacts nonprofit organizations? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, our October 1st CLE is for you.
Effective July 1, 2014, the Nonprofit Revitalization Act (NPRA) marks the first major overhaul of New York State's Not-for-Profit Corporation Law in more than forty years. The NPRA erases some regulatory burdens on nonprofit organizations while heightening certain rules relating to governance procedures and fiscal oversight. Join us to learn what you need to know to advise your New York nonprofit clients on governance best practices in the new regulatory environment.
