Let’s Go Legal is here to help you achieve your mission and stay compliant in the process. This workshop will get you started on a road to compliance by thinking of your nonprofit like a car. Just like a car, you need to register your nonprofit and know how to operate the organization. There are state and federal rules of the road to follow. Your nonprofit needs money and resources (fuel) to power the organization. The people in your car matter too, these are your nonprofit’s valuable workers. Lastly, similar to cars, every organization has a unique look and feel as well as special materials that you may want to protect. The session will also cover bylaws and how to use them to strengthen your board practices as well as advocacy and ways to grow your mission within the public sector.
The workshop will cover:
- State Law
- Federal Law
- Employment Law
- Intellectual Property Law
A light meal will be provided.
