The theme of this year’s annual Nonprofit Institute is “New Frontiers in Nonprofit Law”. We are thrilled to begin the day with a keynote address by New York State Attorney General Letitia James, who will discuss her office’s critical work for New York’s nonprofit sector. We will turn, from there, to in-depth discussion, from a variety of perspectives, of new opportunities and challenges nonprofit organizations and their counsel are confronting. Two of our sessions will explore legal issues in revenue diversification, focusing on joint ventures outside the traditional hospital and higher education context (with nonprofit theater enhancement deals as model), as well as on new online fundraising platforms and tools (such as charity auctions and digital sweepstakes). We also will have speakers addressing the expanding maze of data privacy and security laws nonprofit organizations face in an increasingly digital world and offering practical tips for compliance.

Looking to the Fall 2020 elections, we will provide much-needed guidance on permissible nonprofit engagement with candidates and on issue advocacy during election season, for charitable organizations operating on their own as well as those operating with a 501(c)(4) affiliate. As always, we will have an engaging ethics session examining some of the tricky ethical quandaries counsel to nonprofit clients confront, and expert insight into the current processes and priorities of the Internal Revenue Service and the Charities Bureau of the New York State Attorney General’s Office. New this year, we will have guidance on steps nonprofits can take to diversify their staff and boards, which satisfies the recently implemented diversity and inclusion CLE requirement.

This full-day program is intended to serve both in-house and outside counsel with a well-developed background in nonprofit law, but it will also be a useful and informative session for nonprofit managers as well as lawyers who are newer to the field and seek to enhance their practice in the nonprofit sector or their participation on nonprofit boards. Not to be missed!
