March 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
*Due to the coronavirus outbreak, this class is now being held as a webinar. Please sign up as normal and a link will be sent out prior to the class.
The Center is proud to partner with the DC Bar Pro Bono Center on this course!
As a nonprofit executive, you have a lot on your plate. Raising funds, managing the organization’s programs, supervising staff, and developing a strategic vision for the organization are just a few of your duties. At the same time you need to familiarize yourself with many areas of the law: IRS regulations, local and federal employment law, contract law, risk management, and intellectual property law. At times, it can be too much to handle.
This course can help. As part of the course, we will give you an overview of the laws as they apply to nonprofit organizations, including:
• The basic IRS requirements for nonprofit organizations,
• Best practices in nonprofit governance,
• How local and federal employment laws apply to your organization,
• The ABCs of risk management,
• Information about accounting and fiscal controls,
• Issues to consider when reviewing a contract, and
• The basics of intellectual property and what you need to know.
The eight-session course will be taught by expert lawyers and accountants with experience dealing with nonprofit organizations. The course is designed for nonprofit executives with significant management responsibilities and other staff that seek to develop their management capabilities.
At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion from the Center for Nonprofit Advancement.
The eight sessions will be held from 12 noon to 2 p.m., every Monday (except April 20) beginning March 23, 2020 (March 23, 30, April 6, 13, 27, May 4, 11 & 18).
There is a one-time $75 charge to cover the cost of materials. Lunch is included.
