Even if you updated your organization's bylaws and corporate documents when New York's nonprofit law changed in 2014, recent additional changes to the law mean that you should be updating your bylaws and conflicts policies once again, and taking advantage of some newly clarified governance rules. After reviewing highlights of earlier changes to the nonprofit law, we will describe the latest amendments.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to make sure their bylaws and conflict of interest policy comply with the latest changes to New York's nonprofit law - including a few changes that will make it easier for the Board to operate.

For Executive Directors, Senior Staff, and Board Members.

Presenter: Judith Moldover, Senior Staff Attorney

 
Compensating Nonprofit Executives: State Law, IRS Rules, and Best Practices
May 24, 2017 - 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Paying excessive management salaries or paying more than fair market value for goods or services provided by insiders is wasteful and can result in enforcement actions against the organization and the responsible individuals. This workshop will provide legal and practical information for nonprofit organizations that seek to set reasonable compensation for executive directors and other senior managers, enter into legitimate transactions with Board members and other insiders, and comply with the conflict of interest and related reporting requirements on federal Form 990.

Learning objective: Participants will be able to establish procedures for setting reasonable compensation for executive staff and manage conflict of interest transactions consistent with state and federal law.

For senior managers, human resources professionals, and Board members.

Presenter: Sean Delany, Executive Director
