This year’s annual institute focuses on some of the important legal issues confronting the nonprofit and philanthropic world in these unique and difficult times. It will include a keynote address by the general counsel of the path-breaking Ford Foundation, a panel presentation on various perspectives in implementing an effective and legally compliant DEI program, and a discussion of the legal framework and practical considerations in conducting membership and board meetings, programs and other nonprofit offerings remotely. It will also include a panel discussion on the legal, practical, and regulatory issues relating to nonprofit strategic alliances, as nonprofits consider more efficient and cost-effective ways to work together or restructure in the changing and challenging landscape facing nonprofits.
Who Should Attend: This half-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.
