From the Practising Law Institute site:
The business of running a nonprofit organization has become increasingly complex, as nonprofits are under heightened scrutiny to account for their management and fiduciary practices. New federal legislation has made major changes in the rules for certain types of nonprofits. In this new environment, attorneys who advise nonprofits and their boards of directors or are contemplating board service themselves must be aware of both the legal norms governing their conduct and the public perceptions of charitable activities. You will learn the new developments in federal and state laws affecting nonprofits, as well as new challenges and solutions, in the aftermath of for-profit governance scandals.
At 11:30 AM, Loeb Partner Eliot Green will speak on "Nonprofit Governance." Topics covered will include:
- Duties of directors and officers
- Excess benefit transactions
- Self-dealing by private foundation directors
- Sarbanes-Oxley applications
